Air Wisconsin flight attendants vote to authorize strike

Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA) has announced Air Wisconsin flight attendants have today voted 99 percent to authorize a strike, the company said.

Air Wisconsin provides regional air service for United Airlines.

Negotiations began in July 2016 and are overseen by the National Mediation Board. No future negotiations sessions have been scheduled at this time. Lack of progress could lead to the National Mediation Board (NMB) declaring that negotiations are deadlocked and releasing both parties into a 30-day “cooling off” period leading to a strike deadline.

Air Wisconsin operates CRJ-200 regional jets. Air Wisconsin previously operated as an American Eagle regional air carrier. As of March 2018, Air Wisconsin operates exclusively as a United Express regional air carrier.

The Association of Flight Attendants is the Flight Attendant union. Focused 100 percent on Flight Attendant issues, AFA has been the leader in advancing the Flight Attendant profession for 73 years.
