Greg Davidowitch, MEC President
Greg Davidowitch, MEC President - Gregory E. Davidowitch, President-Master Executive Council for the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, AFL-CIO at United Air Lines, is the Union's chief spokesperson and leader for the more than 17,000 Flight Attendants employed by United Air Lines.
Mr. Davidowitch began his Flight Attendant career on April 17, 1988. He served his peers as an Employee Assistance and Professional Standards Representative starting in 1990, and when he was elected by the Flight Attendants in New York to serve as Local Council Secretary in 1993 he continued to serve as an AFA Employee Assistance Representative. In 1996 he won his election to serve the Members of JFK Council 5 as their President, and continued in that position until his 2002 election to the position of United Master Executive Council President.
"Mr. Davidowitch, a hard-working AFA-CWA activist from New York, is embarking on his third full term as MEC President with the unanimous support of his peers."
Mr. Davidowitch, a hard-working AFA-CWA activist from New York, is embarking on his third full term as MEC President with the unanimous support of his peers. Davidowitch served as the United Flight Attendants' representative on the Creditors Committee during the bankruptcy, and led the Union's fight against the concessions management sought from Flight Attendants and retirees during negotiations under Section 1113 and 1114 of the Bankruptcy Code. Under his leadership AFA-CWA was consistently opposed management bonuses, executive compensation packages and other management excesses in bankruptcy. At the same time he led the Union in its fight against termination of the Flight Attendants' pension. Under his leadership the Union held out to become the last among United's unions to settle, seeking improved terms and ultimately achieving a replacement retirement plan valued at twice what management had offered after terminating their pension plan through the bankruptcy court.
Greg is devoted to the best interests of the Flight Attendant profession as it continues to evolve and he believes that confidence and support of the Flight Attendants through listening and being accessible is an integral part of any efforts towards the good of the profession.
