Horizon Air Flight Attendants Turn Down Tentative Agreement

Demand Additional Contract Improvements Meeting FA Priorities

Flight attendants at Horizon Air, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA), today turned down a tentative agreement with management. The union said in a news release that the vote makes clear that the more than 500 Horizon Air FA's expect more for their contributions to the airline.

"Horizon Air flight attendants have sent a loud and clear message that management's offer is inadequate to address our needs. Horizon flight attendants are focused on our future, and it is time for management to move forward on a new, improved contract," said Leslie Miller, acting AFA Horizon President. "For an agreement to be ratified, it must meet the priorities set by Horizon Air flight attendants."

AFA will take immediate action to survey the flight attendants to determine their top priorities.  The parties will then resume negotiations. Horizon, a wholly owned subsidiary of Alaska Air Group, offers service to 40 destinations in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

The Association of Flight Attendants is the world's largest Flight Attendant union. Focused 100 percent on flight attendant issues, AFA has been the leader in advancing the flight attendant profession for over 65 years. Serving as the voice for flight attendants in the workplace, in the aviation industry, in the media and on Capitol Hill, AFA says it has transformed the profession by raising wages, benefits and working conditions. Nearly 60,000 flight attendants at 21 airlines come together to form AFA, part of the 700,000-member strong Communications Workers of America (CWA), AFL-CIO.
