Day of Unity - October 15, 2015

afa pinWelcome Aboard the new United Airlines

Our airlines have recovered and are doing better than ever, but we have yet to feel it. It is past time for a fair contract that allows all of us to share the profits we help create. October 15th we will take action together again to support our negotiators and our position at the negotiating table. At no other time have we been better positioned to fight for an industry-leading contract. We will stand together for it October 15th. We will send our JNC into mediation with the full power of 25,000 Flight Attendants standing with them. We will welcome fellow Flight Attendants, passengers, other union members and supporters to join us too, but we will take responsibility for our future and commit to join the picket line October 15th for our biggest Day of Unity yet.

Flight Attendants are dedicated to the long-term success of United Airlines. We welcome new leadership with Oscar Munoz and a new direction that recognizes the value of frontline workers and the full potential of our airline. Please check back for latest updates and times.
