FLIGHT ATTENDANTS' RIGHTS PROTECTED - NMB CALLS FOR UNION ELECTION AT PINNACLE

 







Mesaba/Pinnacle/Colgan Flight Attendants Get Chance to Vote for the Flight Attendant Union

WASHINGTON, April 18, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Mediation Board (NMB) today declared that the Pinnacle/Mesaba/Colgan merger has created a single carrier for representation of over 1,300 Flight Attendants. Over 600 Flight Attendants at Mesaba are currently represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA).

"This is an amazing opportunity for Flight Attendants at these three carriers to unite and stand together for a better tomorrow. We are excited to welcome our Pinnacle and Colgan flying partners to the AFA family and look forward to the opportunity these Flight Attendants have to stand together for the best protections for Flight Attendants during bankruptcy and a better future at Pinnacle," said Veda Shook, AFA International President.

During the next two-week "showing of interest" period, Pinnacle and Colgan Flight Attendants will have the opportunity to sign cards that indicate their interest in gaining AFA representation.

"AFA is the leading voice for Flight Attendants with experts on staff and extraordinary resources focused entirely on the Flight Attendant career.  Our union will push back against corporate efforts to make Flight Attendants pay for management failures.  AFA has the experience to meet these challenges, even in the most difficult financial times.  With AFA representation, we will work together, unifying for the best future for all Flight Attendants at the new Pinnacle Corporation," said Shook.



The Association of Flight Attendants is the world's largest Flight Attendant union. Focused 100 percent on Flight Attendant issues, AFA has been the leader in advancing the Flight Attendant profession for over 65 years. Serving as the voice for Flight Attendants in the workplace, in the aviation industry, in the media and on Capitol Hill, AFA has transformed the Flight Attendant profession by raising wages, benefits and working conditions.  Nearly 60,000 Flight Attendants at 21 airlines come together to form AFA, part of the 700,000-member strong Communications Workers of America (CWA), AFL-CIO.
