As some of you are aware AFA is part of a larger union, the Communication Workers of America. Over the last few months Spirit AFA has been working diligently to bridge the gap between AFA and our larger parent union, CWA, by supporting their efforts with rallies, meetings and generally showing support. In return CWA has provided a lot of helpful tools and resources that will help us continue to grow and become a stronger union. Because of this we feel the need to continually get our flight attendants involved with issues that not only affect us but that also affect CWA as a whole. Below is some information about CWA and a list of CWA events and rallies. (Calendar coming soon!) You can also click the issues button to see how you can get directly involved.
CWA represents 700,000 workers in private and public sector employment in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico in 1,200 chartered CWA local unions. In 10,000 communities across the United States, CWA members work in telecommunications and information technology, the airline industry, news media, broadcast and cable television, education, health care and public service, law enforcement, manufacturing and other fields.
Among CWA major employers are AT&T; Verizon; General Electric; the New York Times and Wall Street Journal; United Airlines, US Airways and 19 other airlines; NBC and ABC television networks; the Canadian Broadcasting Co.; the University of California, the state of New Jersey and various law enforcement agencies across the country.
On September 11th, our flight attendants dedicate a wreath to the Fallen Crews of the Terrorist Attacks at the Fort Lauderdale 9/11 Memorial Ceremony. Crew Members are encouraged to attend in uniform, if possible. It would be an honor for anyone available to attend.
