“We are excited to have a tentative agreement for our members to vote on which provides necessary improvements,” stated Valentin Lorien, AFA president at Norwegian Air. “We worked really hard for this day and I’m proud to stand with cabin crew around the world to raise the standards of our careers.”

The two year agreement provides immediate pay raises and defined schedule and work rules.

“Norwegian Flight Attendants stuck together to lock in their union and achieve this first contract pending ratification,” said Sara Nelson, AFA International President. “They stuck together and their management responded. They won not only improvements at work, but also the respect of those they faced in negotiations. Having their union and a means to speak up together changed everything.”
