According to a recent Association of Flight Attendants press release, the United Airlines flight attendants will be picketing and distributing informational leaflets at more than 20 airports on November 20th. From what I can gather by reading their press release, this activity is appears to be a direct response to three main issues:
AFA has announced that flight attendants will "create CHAOS at airports over the holidays until United shows flight attendants the respect they deserve by providing raises on par with those of other workers at the airline." However, I'm not sure exactly what they mean by 'other workers'. Pilots? CSR's? Unimatic Programmers? Rono Dutta?
If it's the pilots or Dutta, then okay, I'll take a $XXX,XXX.XX per year increase! As the good folks in Fargo would say, "You Betcha!"
