AFA-CWA Flight Attendants Rally at 51st Annual Board of Directors Meeting

Last week, members of the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA-CWA) met in Atlanta, Ga., for their 51st Annual Board of Directors Convention. The in-person meeting brought together Master Executive Council (MEC) Officers from each of the 20 AFA-represented airlines, Local Executive Council (LEC) Presidents, International Officers, members, and guests.

Participants heard from CWA President Claude Cummings Jr., CWA Secretary-Treasurer Ameenah Salaam, CWA District 3 Vice President Richard Honeycutt, Chair of the National Transportation Safety Board Jennifer Homendy, Federal Aviation Administration Deputy Administrator Katie Thomson, Representative Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.), and United Auto Workers President Shawn Fain.

Attendees rallied in downtown Atlanta to demand fair pay, improved benefits, and fair contracts across the industry. Flight Attendants called out Delta Airlines’ unfair tier system that undervalues Flight Attendants at its subsidiary Endeavor Air. The rally included Flight Attendants from Delta and SkyWest currently organizing to join the AFA-CWA.
