Lynx Flight Attendants Join AFA

A majority of Lynx Aviation flight attendants voted last week to be represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA-CWA). The vote, counted by the National Mediation Board (NMB), showed 55 of the 87 eligible Lynx flight attendants electing AFA-CWA. Owing to the high participation rate, the vote exceeded the NMB's rule that over half of the work group must participate in order for the election to be valid. Lynx is a Frontier Airlines subsidiary.
"We are excited to welcome our Lynx sisters and brothers to the AFA-CWA family," said Patricia Friend, AFA-CWA International President. "Today, Lynx flight attendants stood together and made their voices heard despite outdated NMB rules and management's anti-union tactics. We applaud their determination to shape the future of their careers by joining AFA-CWA."
AFA-CWA filed a petition for election with the NMB after a strong majority of Lynx's flight attendants signed representational cards earlier this year. Last week, AFA-CWA was also elected the bargaining representative for the over 150 flight attendants at Ryan International.
