Flight Attendant Union Statement on Nomination of Brett Kavanaugh

Washington, DC (July 10, 2018) — The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA) President Sara Nelson released the following statement on the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh:

“Judge Brett Kavanaugh has demonstrated contempt for workers and their families. In his decisions, he has consistently sided with employers over the rights of working people, including safety issues in the workplace. Kavanaugh has ruled against workers’ access to the courts, owed monetary benefits, and failed to hold employers accountable who evade collective bargaining and discriminate against union members. We oppose his appointment because his record demonstrates contempt for AFA members’ rights."


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 www.afacwa.org.
