Flight Attendant Union: US Airways/American Airlines Merger Must Recognize Contributions Of All Flight Attendants

WASHINGTON, Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA) represents nearly 10,000 Flight Attendants at US Airways and wholly owned subsidiaries Piedmont and PSA, as well as AMR wholly owned subsidiary American Eagle. As these airlines combine to become the world's largest, Flight Attendants stand in unity for recognition of their contributions to the success of US Airways and American Airlines:

"For decades, the professional contributions of AFA Flight Attendants have been instrumental in the overall success of our airlines. Flight Attendants from five airlines will be affected by a US Airways/American merger and together, we expect to be full partners in the benefits created by forming the world's largest airline.

"For this merger to be productive, it is imperative that it not only work for all Flight Attendants, but for all employees at both carriers. The new American will provide one of the world's strongest networks – and that includes the work of all Flight Attendants in that network. No one can be left behind – we know that together, American Airlines will be stronger.

"As we continue to navigate the merger process, we will work with our flying partners at American Airlines to take advantage of emerging opportunities that will reward our hard work and improve the lives of all Flight Attendants."

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 67 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 come together to form AFA, part of the 700,000-member strong Communications Workers of America (CWA), AFL-CIO.
