It has been reported that the US Airways-AFA contract is more valuable than the APFA Conditional Labor Agreement. In fact, our CLA’s wage structure, even coming out of bankruptcy, is worth $17 million more annually than that of US Airways’ Flight Attendants. To be clear, if we were to adopt the rates of pay of US Airways Flight Attendants, our work group would lose more than $17 million every year. Additionally, our 401(k) contribution rate is worth $39 million more than US Airways. Again, if we were to accept the same company contributions to our retirement plans that US Airways Flight Attendants receive, we would lose out on $39 million every year. For more information on the differences at AFA-CWA, watch this short video by Steven Baumert, APFA Executive Committee member.

ABOUT APFA: The Association of Professional Flight Attendants, founded in 1977, represents the more than 16,000 flight attendants at American Airlines. In November 2011, American’s parent company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Throughout the bankruptcy trial, APFA President Laura Glading has served on the Unsecured Creditors’ Committee where she continues to advocate for American Flight Attendants. In February 2013, American and US Airways announced their intention to combine the carriers and the new American is expected to exit bankruptcy on December 9, 2013. Achieving a merger inside of bankruptcy is unprecedented in the industry and would not have occurred without the efforts of American’s labor unions, particularly APFA.
