Washington, DC (August 7, 2017) — The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA) this week will urge the flying public to tell American and United regional carrier Mesa Airlines to bargain for a fair contract with Mesa Flight Attendants. Mesa Flight Attendants authorized a strike in March, with a 99.56 percent vote.


“Passengers need to know Mesa Flight Attendants often must choose between paying utility bills or buying food,” said Sara Nelson, AFA International President. “Major airlines like American and United profit by paying Flight Attendants at regional airlines substandard wages for doing the same work as mainline carriers and pocketing the difference. That’s just not fair. Enough! Fair contract at Mesa now!”


Mesa Airlines is headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona and provides 600 daily departures to 117 cities, 39 states, the District of Columbia, Canada and Mexico including Dallas, TX; Houston, TX; Phoenix, AZ; and Washington, DC.
