 Air Wisconsin Flight Attendants Push for a Fair Contract 

Chicago — Air Wisconsin Flight Attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA), will picket at O’Hare International Airport on Friday to push for a fair contract. Air Wisconsin secured a long-term contract to provide regional air service for United Airlines this year.


“Air Wisconsin management has security for the future. Now it’s time for Flight Attendants to have security with a new contract of their own,” said Ernie Lazernick, AFA Air Wisconsin President. “Air Wisconsin Flight Attendants deserve to earn a living wage that recognizes our role as aviation’s first responders.”
Negotiations began in July 2016 and are overseen by the National Mediation Board. Negotiations continue this week in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. 
Air Wisconsin is a regional airline, headquartered in Appleton, Wisconsin operating CRJ-200 regional jets. Air Wisconsin previously operated as an American Eagle regional air carrier. As of March 2018, Air Wisconsin operates exclusively as a United Express regional air carrier.
