Says Merger Has Created A Single Carrier For Purposes Of Representation
The National Mediation Board (NMB) said Wednesday that the Pinnacle/Mesaba/Colgan merger has created a single carrier for representation of over 1,300 flight attendants. Over 600 flight attendants at Mesaba are currently represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA).
"This is an amazing opportunity for flight attendants at these three carriers to unite and stand together for a better tomorrow. We are excited to welcome our Pinnacle and Colgan flying partners to the AFA family and look forward to the opportunity these Flight Attendants have to stand together for the best protections for flight attendants during bankruptcy and a better future at Pinnacle," said Veda Shook, AFA International President.
During the next two-week "showing of interest" period, Pinnacle and Colgan flight attendants will have the opportunity to sign cards that indicate their interest in gaining AFA representation.
"AFA is the leading voice for flight attendants with experts on staff and extraordinary resources focused entirely on the Flight Attendant career. Our union will push back against corporate efforts to make flight attendants pay for management failures. AFA has the experience to meet these challenges, even in the most difficult financial times. With AFA representation, we will work together, unifying for the best future for all flight attendants at the new Pinnacle Corporation," said Shook.
