Omni Flight Attendants voted to join the Association of Flight
Attendants-CWA (AFA) by a margin of 83 percent. In a union
representation election that concluded Tuesday, the National
Mediation Board (NMB) announced that out of 284 votes cast, 237
elected AFA as their collective bargaining representative.
"It is a pleasure to welcome our sisters and brothers at Omni to
the world's largest Flight Attendant union, run by and for Flight
Attendants. We look forward to the contributions Omni Flight
Attendants will bring to our union and stand beside them as they
work to advance their careers," said AFA International President
Veda Shook (pictured).
Based in Tulsa, OK, Omni Air operates international and domestic
passenger charters. In addition, Omni also provides cargo and troop
airlift for the U.S. military. "Omni Flight Attendants make great
contributions to the success of our carrier and to our country
through our work with the U.S. military. We look forward to
securing a legally binding contract that recognizes our roles as
first responders," said Mya Grap, who has been appointed AFA
president at Omni until an election can be held for Omni members to
vote for new officers.
