Organizing Updates Around CWA - Breeze Airways

Breeze Airways

Earlier this week, workers at Breeze Airways gave a resounding “Yes!” to union membership, with over 76 percent of workers voting to join the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA. The election was certified by the National Mediation Board (NMB). This win is part of a wave of union organizing happening across the South. Breeze Airways Flight Attendants are based in some of the most hostile states for union workers: South Carolina, Florida, Louisiana, Utah, and Virginia.

“Breeze Flight Attendants filed for an election two weeks after taking their campaign public in January and kept organizing together to turn out a clear mandate to address their concerns at work. Today, they gain the legal right to bargain and have a voice in their future at Breeze. We are inspired by their solidarity and thrilled to welcome them to our AFA family,” said AFA-CWA International President Sara Nelson.

Despite an aggressive anti-union campaign run by Breeze management and its CEO, organizers persevered. “Management broke out all the tired old union-busting, but together we weren’t intimidated or fooled,” said Robynne Martino, Breeze AFA Organizing Committee.

Breeze Flight Attendants cited constantly-changing work rules, substandard pay for time on the job, insufficient work hours, and inconsistent and disrespectful treatment from management as reasons for organizing their workforce.
