Time is now for an industry-groundbreaking United Flight Attendant Contract

Following United Airlines order announcement for 110 more aircraft, Association of Flight Attendants-CWA United President Ken Diaz, representing 26,000 United Flight Attendants, released the following statement:

"United management has made it clear once again: there's plenty of money and desire to invest in the airline. New planes, new gates, new service, new lounges. The time is now for an industry-leading and industry-groundbreaking United Flight Attendant contract.

"Time is up for United management to make good on “good leads the way" with the contract improvements we have earned. Our union is prepared to press forward on these negotiations for near-term resolution and will redouble efforts to back up our Negotiating Committee with action, and, if necessary, a strike vote and CHAOS™ preparations.

"United Flight Attendants are unified and ready to do whatever it takes."
