AFA-CWA Flight Attendants took their fight for fair treatment at regional carriers to Washington, D.C., today. Flight Attendants from 20 airlines and supporters rallied in support of workers negotiating at Air Wisconsin (United Express), PSA (American Eagle), and Endeavor (Delta Connection) – and to raise the standard for all Flight Attendants and aviation workers.
Rally attendees called out the unjust lower pay, benefits, and work rules for Flight Attendants and aviation workers on regional jets who are employed under the United, American, Delta, or Alaska brands. The same passengers buy the same tickets for the same price on the same routes – but the workers are "worth" 45% less, according to the industry. AFA-CWA's #BridgeTheGap campaign is about ending this inequality and threat to all Flight Attendant jobs through negotiations, legislative action, and organizing.
