Miami Air Flight Attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA), today voted 93 percent to ratify a new contract. The 5-year agreement provides immediate pay raises and per diem, and improved work rules for over 100 Flight Attendants.
“Miami Air Flight Attendants stood together throughout negotiations and a year ago, authorized a strike if necessary. Today, we ratified a new contract that will provide much needed wage increases for Flight Attendants and their families,” said Natasha Glasper, AFA Miami Air President.
Negotiations began in January 2015. The the National Mediation Board has overseen negotiations through mediation since December 2015. Flight Attendants overwhelmingly authorized a strike in October 2017.
