AFA seeks wage increase for American Eagle flight attendants

The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, AFL-CIO (AFA) has called on American Airlines CEO Doug Parker to provide American Eagle flight attendants with the same wage increase as mainline flight attendants, the association said.

While Doug Parker announced profit sharing for all AAG employees, the flight attendants serving the same passengers for American Eagle are paid significantly less.

The three airlines that make up the American Eagle brand–Envoy, Piedmont and PSA–are wholly owned subsidiaries of the American Airlines Group (AAG). AAG is making record setting profits, but yet refuses to honor their frontline employees´ contributions to the success of American Eagle Brand.

The Association of Flight Attendants has advanced the flight attendant profession for 70 years. Nearly 60,000 Flight Attendants come together to form AFA, part of the 700,000-member strong Communications Workers of America (CWA), AFL-CIO.
