Piedmont Airlines Flight Attendants Ratify New Contract

Date: 3/2/2022

AFA Piedmont Flight Attendants today voted to ratify a new contract. The four year agreement provides substantial wage increases, a signing bonus, no cuts to their high-quality healthcare program, and meaningful work rule improvements, for 300 Piedmont Flight Attendants.

“This contract will make an immediate difference in our lives at Piedmont,” said AFA Piedmont President Keturah Johnson. “We work hard as aviation's first responders and deserve to be recognized within American Airlines Group. This contract provides real improvements overnight and throughout the length of the contract. As we work with Piedmont to get this contract fully implemented, we will also organize with Flight Attendants across our industry to negotiate for continued improvements that reflect the value we bring to our airlines.”
 
The contract follows a historic unanimous strike authorization vote by Piedmont Flight Attendants in October 2021. That changed dynamics at the bargaining table almost immediately. Under the Railway Labor Act, contracts become amendable and do not expire. The result was years of mediation overseen by the previous administration without movement from the company.
 
Piedmont Airlines is a wholly owned regional airline of American Airlines Group. Headquartered in Salisbury, MD, Piedmont has Flight Attendant bases in Philadelphia and Charlotte operating 400 daily flights to over 55 destinations.
