Flight Attendants Picket UAL Shareholder's Meeting
May 9, 2007
Employees Demand Shared Rewards for Long-term Success of Airline
CHICAGO - United Airlines flight attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, AFL-CIO (AFA-CWA), and other United employees will picket the UAL Shareholder meeting at the Chicago Field Museum on May 10, 2007. Picketing is scheduled to begin at 9:45 am on the south side of the museum.
"It's a shame that at the first annual shareholder meeting after exiting bankruptcy, our airline is again suffering from even worse executive decisions than the ones that led it into bankruptcy. We should all be celebrating our collective success, sharing in the rewards of United Airlines and instead we are forced to protest gross injustice," said Greg Davidowitch, AFA-CWA President at United Airlines.
"Management must immediately move up Contract bargaining dates to improve pay, success sharing and Flight Attendant quality of work life; the future of United Airlines depends upon this crucial business move."
