Flight attendants with US Airways protested at airports across the country Wednesday as they work toward a unified labor agreements from the 2005 merger between US Airways and America West.
The Association of Flight Attendants -- CWA represents over 6,700 flight attendants at the airline.
While US Airways Flight Attendants protested in unison Wednesday, results from the current strike vote will be announced in less than a week, according to a press release from the union. The strike authorization, which concludes on November 20, demonstrates what Flight Attendants are willing to do to achieve a contract that can be ratified.
US Airways Flight Attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, tell WBTV this is a clear indication of what they are willing to do "to achieve a fair contract" in the airline's merger with America West.
A vote started this week to authorize a strike to back up demands for flight attendants with both airlines to have a single contract in the merger.
Instructions on how to vote for that strike were sent to 6,700 people. Both the union and US Airways says there is no fear a strike would be happening before Thanksgiving and no travel plans should be disrupted.
"Flight Attendants are fed up and taking action to keep the focus on the current workers at US Airways. Doug Parker needs to tend to the unresolved issues at the nation's fifth largest, but fractured, airline before seeking a takeover of American. We sacrificed and we work hard every day to make this airline profitable and it is high time management get serious about finishing this merger and recognizing frontline workers," said Roger Holmin and Deborah Volpe, presidents for AFA representing Flight Attendants for pre-merger US Airways and America West, respectively.
