DFW Terminal D, Upper Level
Employees of American Airlines, including those represented by the Association of Professional Flight Attendants (APFA) and the Transport Workers Union (TWU) and concerned citizens, will hold a Valentine’s Day protest at DFW International Airport on Tuesday, February 14. Flight Attendants, Mechanics and Ground-workers, and supporters will join together to protest the company’s release of “outrageous terms” they deem necessary to fly right.
The AFA-CWA as well as Southwest Flight Attendants are the latest to join our protest this Tuesday, February 14.† They along with the TWU and other work groups at AA will join us for a Valentineís Day protest at DFW.
This demonstration has grown from a grassroots effort organized by line Flight Attendants to a full-blown official union action. The heart of the matter being the outrageous terms proposed on February 1.
APFA President Laura Glading said in a Press Advisory, “American’s employees are the heart of this airline and have sacrificed billions in the past years to support their company. Our message is clear: We have worked hard, have played by the rules, and we all deserve better than this.”
