As promised, the MEC would keep you advised every step of our negotiation process with updates and today is know different. AFA-CWA has requested the National Mediation Board (NMB) to release us from mediated negotiations with Spirit Airlines. Managements lack of movement in the last few sessions has prompted us to ask for this release. If the National Mediation Board (NMB) grants the release, we will begin our 30 day cooling off period, which will hopefully press the company to reach a deal.
As front line employees, our flight attendant group deserves a contract that reflects our contributions that lends to the success of this airline.
