The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA-CWA) is the world's largest labor union organized by flight attendants for flight attendants. AFA represents nearly 60,000 flight attendants at 21 airlines, serving as a voice for flight attendants at their workplace, in the industry, in the media and on Capitol Hill. Simply put, the goal of flight attendants who become part of AFA-CWA is to negotiate better pay, benefits, working conditions and work rules at their airline, and to improve their safety on the job.
AFA-CWA negotiates the best flight attendant contracts in the industry, maintaining and improving wages, benefits and working conditions for flight attendants.
AFA-CWA has strength in numbers and a professional staff to assist flight attendants with workplace, career and interpersonal concerns.
AFA-CWA is a democratic union representing flight attendants at every type of carrier. All AFA-CWA officers are flight attendants who solicit member input on policy and financial decisions.
AFA-CWA is the only flight attendant union solely representing flight attendant's concerns affiliated with the AFL-CIO, the 13-million-member American labor federation.
AFA-CWA shares information and strategies, working in solidarity with flight attendant unions around the world through the International Transport Workers Federation (ITF).
March 6, 2019 - During Women's History Month, we honor the founding Flight Attendants of our Union. These fearless women provided the foundation for AFA to fight against discrimination on the job including age, weight, race, marital status, having children, for men to have the same rights as women. Today, we honor their legacy by ensuring full equality and respect for our role as aviation's first responders.
