Flight Attendants To Picket

Source: Archived Content

Date: Sep 03, 2000

It looks like the United Airlines flight attendants are planning to picket at major airports to protest alleged abuses and contract violations during these past few months.  In case you've been a coma, or not been through Chicago or Denver recently, the cancellation of flights have caused numerous problems for everyone, not just the folks at WHQ.

"Flight attendants stood by United in its summer of turmoil," said Linda Farrow, MEC President, told Airwise. "In return, management has wreaked havoc on our family and personal lives by systematically breaking the rules it has agreed to in our contract and by heavy-handed discipline. Now, we're fighting back."

The article continues by mentioning that flight attendants met with top United officials last Tuesday to present their grievances, which they said include frequent work schedule changes, failure to assign hotels or assignment to drug-infested, unsafe hotels, forcing flight attendants to sleep on aircraft or in crew lounges on layovers and other problems.

United spokesman Kurt Ebenhoch said airline officials assured the attendants their complaints will be investigated and "addressed where appropriate."
