Spirit Flight Attendants to Management: Put an End to Demeaning Advertising

Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

WASHINGTON, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Spirit flight attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA-CWA) are demanding an immediate end to the demeaning and demoralizing advertising campaigns that management continues to run.

"For Spirit flight attendants, the sexist and shameful advertising that management continues to associate our carrier with is embarrassing and diminishes our role as safety professionals," said Deborah Crowley, AFA-CWA Spirit President. "As the face of the airline to many passengers, it is embarrassing for Spirit flight attendants to work for a management team with such little regard for so many outstanding employees."

For over 60 years, AFA-CWA has fought for equality and has made significant advancements in women's and worker's rights. After working to end age, weight, marital status, gender, race or pregnancy discrimination against flight attendants, AFA-CWA has redefined the flight attendant profession from "sky girl" to crucial safety professionals.

"Flight attendants across the world have fought for the respect and dignity we hold dear today. We will not go backwards! We will stand firm in our right for dignity and respect," added Crowley.

For over 60 years, the Association of Flight Attendants has been serving as the voice for flight attendants in the workplace, in the aviation industry, in the media and on Capitol Hill. More than 55,000 flight attendants at 20 airlines come together to form AFA-CWA, the world's largest flight attendant union. AFA is part of the 700,000-member strong Communications Workers of America (CWA), AFL-CIO. Visit us at www.afanet.org.
