NOW BOARDING: Summer of Strife at Frontier Airlines

Frontier Flight Attendants Picket at PHL for a Fair Contract

Philadelphia (June 12, 2018) — Flight Attendants at Frontier Airlines picketed Tuesday at Philadelphia International Airport adding pressure to move forward with Flight Attendant contract negotiations. Frontier management faces increasing turbulence due to languishing contract negotiations with Flight Attendants and Pilots.

“Frontier has grown into a national carrier and a viable airline. But if Frontier wants to be taken seriously, it must negotiate an agreement that recognizes our contributions to dependability, safety, and profitability of the airline,” said Jennifer Sala, Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA) Frontier President. “We’ll be at airports every month until management moves forward earnestly to reach an agreement.”

Frontier Flight Attendants plan to picket at each Frontier-base airport in an escalating campaign to pressure management at the negotiating table. Flight Attendants picketed at Denver International Airport last month.

Negotiations began in November 2015, and continue in mediation with the oversight of the National Mediation Board. Mediation is scheduled to continue this week in Philadelphia.Last month, Frontier Pilots edged closer to a possible strike after requesting a release from federal mediation.
