Flight Attendants Will Demonstrate During CEO Ben Baldanza's Appearance at Equity Conference
WASHINGTON, Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Spirit Airlines Flight Attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA), will protest on Friday, December 7 against management delays in negotiations. Flight Attendants are fed up after five years of negotiations; they expect a fair contract now. While Spirit CEO Ben Baldanza addresses the 2012 INVEST Florida Equity Conference, Flight Attendants and their supporters will turn out en masse to protest the inequities Flight Attendants experience at Spirit Airlines.
Friday December 7, 2012
Spirit Flight Attendants proved that they will do whatever it takes to get a contract that reflects their contributions to the airline earlier this year when they authorized a strike by 98.4 percent. In March, AFA asked the National Mediation Board to declare that negotiations are at an impasse and Spirit Flight Attendants are currently waiting to be released into a 30-day cooling-off period. That decision can come at any time.
