Message from Sara Nelson - July 31 (Jul 31, 2020)

On behalf of Sara Nelson- Int'l President AFA-CWA.
After mounting a pressure campaign and threatening legal action, AFA successfully pressured United Airlines management into an expedited arbitration, including a decision rendered within 20 days of the hearing. Even a lawsuit, which would have taken more time, could only hope to achieve this outcome by the court. The arbitration is set to take place mid-August. AFA will share more information at that time, but not before in order to best protect the union's position to defend these jobs. Our fight continues to defend and protect all Flight Attendants based in NRT, HKG and FRA who have given so much to United Airlines.
In solidarity,
