Air Wisconsin Flight Attendants File for Mediation

Washington, D.C. (August 30, 2017) — Air Wisconsin Flight Attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA), today filed for mediation with the National Mediation Board (NMB) to press forward on contract negotiations for nearly 300 Flight Attendants.

“Air Wisconsin Flight Attendants deserve a contract that reflects the contributions Flight Attendants have made to ensure a stable, successful future for the airline. We look forward to securing a contract that values our role as first responders in the cabin,” said Ernie Lazernick, AFA Air Wisconsin President.

Air Wisconsin Flight Attendants began negotiations in July 2016. Filing for federal mediation with the NMB is the next step in negotiations under the Railway Labor Act prior to any request for a release to strike.


The Association of Flight Attendants is the Flight Attendant union. Focused 100 percent on Flight Attendant issues, AFA has been the leader in advancing the Flight Attendant profession for 72 years. Serving as the voice for Flight Attendants in the workplace, in the aviation industry, in the media and on Capitol Hill, AFA has transformed the Flight Attendant profession by raising wages, benefits and working conditions. Nearly 50,000 Flight Attendants come together to form AFA, part of the 700,000-member strong Communications Workers of America (CWA), AFL-CIO. Visit us at
