U.S.-based Cathay Pacific Flight Attendants Ratify First Contract

AFA Cathay Pacific Flight Attendants voted by 99 percent to ratify a first contract this week. The three-year agreement provides immediate pay increases, back-pay, schedule flexibility, and retirement security for Flight Attendants U.S. based in SFO, LAX and JFK.

“We are so excited that on our Union's 74th birthday hundreds of Flight Attendants are gaining the rights and benefits of a union contract for the first time,” said Sara Nelson, AFA International President. “Cathay Pacific Flight Attendants based in the U.S. voted by 97% to join AFA and used that overwhelming solidarity to win the improvements that drove their organizing campaign. These Flight Attendants inspire all of us with their commitment to each other, to our union, and to our work as aviation's first responders. We congratulate the Cathay Pacific Flight Attendants' leaders, activists and members.” Read more >
