With 100% Support, AFA Piedmont Flight Attendants Vote to Authorize Strike

October 22, 2021 – A historic, overwhelming majority of AFA Piedmont Flight Attendants voted to authorize a strike yesterday.

“Piedmont Flight Attendants are speaking with one voice to demand management get serious about resolving our contract,” said Keturah Johnson, AFA Piedmont President. “Flight Attendants kept Piedmont flying through the pandemic. How does management thank us? By offering a ‘deal’ that would mean cuts to our take-home pay. We are already paid less than our counterparts at other regional carriers, and far less than mainline flight attendants doing the same work at the American Airlines Group. Enough is enough. Piedmont Flight Attendants can’t afford to work at Piedmont.” Full press release >

AFA Piedmont StrikeThe closing of the strike vote culminated with a picketing event outside of Philadelphia International Airport that included Piedmont, Spirit, and Mesa Flight Attendants, mainline APFA American Flight Attendants, and union activists from CWA, AFT, and the Philadelphia AFL-CIO.

Following the 100% strike vote, AFA could request that the National Mediation Board (NMB) declare that negotiations are deadlocked and release both parties into a 30-day "cooling off" period, which would then lead to a strike deadline. AFA has a trademarked strike strategy known as CHAOS™ or Create Havoc Around Our System™. With CHAOS™, a strike could affect the entire system or a single flight. We decide when, where and how to strike without notice to management or passengers. Learn more about CHAOS >
