Envoy Air


In the wake of a CBS4 report this week detailing the low wages and poor working conditions at Miami International Airport (MIA) for passenger service agents at American Airlines-owned Envoy Air and for workers employed by Eulen America, Congresswoman Donna Shalala and Rep. Frederica Wilson held a congressional roundtable featuring airport workers to demand that American Airlines and Delta take action against the hazardous working conditions. Passenger service agent and CWA member James McKnight spoke at the roundtable about Envoy workers' fight for a fair contract as American Airlines continues to stonewall them at the bargaining table.
