Lynx Flight Attendants Join AFA
"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 "Today, Lynx flight attendants stood together and made their voices heard despite outdated NMB rules and management's anti-union tactics.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.
