WASHINGTON, Feb. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A majority of Flight Attendants at Spirit Airlines, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA), today voted against a tentative agreement with management. Their strong vote makes it clear that Spirit Flight Attendants expect more for their outstanding contributions to the profitable airline.
"Spirit Flight Attendants have sent a loud and clear message that management's offer fails to address our needs and does not reflect our true worth. We remain focused on our future. Our demands at the bargaining table are now formally supported by an overwhelming message from the front lines of our airline," said Todd St. Pierre, AFA President at Spirit. "We expect a substantial return for our contributions to the success of Spirit Airlines. It is well past time for management to negotiate an agreement that can be ratified and meets the priorities identified by Spirit Flight Attendants."
AFA will survey the more than 1,200 Flight Attendants to focus efforts on the issues that matter most to Spirit Flight Attendants. The National Mediation Board, which has been mediating between the parties since 2009, retains oversight of future negotiations.
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 68 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. Visit us at www.afacwa.org.
