CWA President Claude Cummings Jr. Connects With CWA Members

Claude Cummings with United Flight Attendants

Earlier this week, CWA President Claude Cummings Jr. witnessed the critical role AFA-CWA Flight Attendants play as aviation’s first responders. As his United Airlines flight to CWA’s District 7 meeting was about to take off, a passenger became ill. The Flight Attendants located medical assistance, and supported the passenger and her traveling companion as the plane returned to the gate. “You hear about these kinds of situations on flights; it is something else to experience it. They did an excellent job!” said President Cummings.

They heard firsthand about the challenges the workers are facing on the job. “I work for our members; our members don’t work for me,” said President Cummings. “These worksite visits are important to me because I get to learn more about members’ priorities and work with the District and Sector leadership to address any issues.”
