Flight attendant union seeks new location for May board meeting

The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA) board of directors is looking to move its May meeting from Atlanta, Georgia, after the Georgia State Assembly passed an anti-LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, queer or questioning) bill.

“The AFA Executive board is looking for alternate locations for our upcoming board meeting should this bill become law,” said AFA International President Sara Nelson. “We urge Gov. Deal to veto HB 757 and send a definitive message that Georgia is not, and will not, become a state that provides a legitimized pathway for hatred and discrimination.”

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.
