Union Carriers Selected as Official Airlines of the Democratic National Convention
October 21, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC -The Democratic National Convention Leadership Team announced the selection of United Airlines and US Airways, two highly unionized carriers, as the official airlines of the 2004 Democratic National Convention.
"After enduring nearly four years of the White House's anti-worker agenda, we applaud the DNC for showing its support for unionized workers-in a very significant way," said Association of Flight Attendants International President Patricia Friend. "The past two years have been very difficult for the workers in the airline industry. But the unionized employees at both United Airlines and US Airways are committed to the highest level of safety, security and service and the DNC has sent a strong message by selecting airlines where a majority of employees fight for better jobs and benefits through unions."
The Convention will be held July 26-29, 2004, in Boston.
