Envoy – American Eagle Agents Rally for a Fair Contract

Date: December 8, 2017
Type: AFA Article

Envoy Air employees will picket and hold a press conference on December 13, 2017 at O’Hare and 3 other airports: Dallas/Fort Worth, Los Angeles and Miami. Envoy, formerly American Eagle, is a regional carrier and is wholly owned by American Airlines.

In November of 2015 Envoy agents across the US voted to join the Communications Workers of America (CWA). The group of 3,800 includes 300 at O’Hare, who work at the gates boarding American Airlines’ regional flights.  The goal is to close the pay gap between regional airlines like Envoy and mainline carriers like American Airlines. Envoy agents’ pay is less than half of what mainline agents make for the same work.

WHAT:           News conference and informational picketing regarding ongoing contract negotiations with Envoy (American Eagle).

WHEN:          Wednesday, December 13, 2017, 11 AM-1:00 PM 

WHERE:        O’Hare Airport, curved area between Terminals 2 & 3, upper level 

WHO:            Envoy Airport Agents
                      
AFA-CWA representatives
                      
Labor and community supporters

If you are in the Chicago area on Wednesday, December 13th, please join us at O’Hare Airport in support of our Brothers and Sisters at Envoy in their quest for a fair contract.
