The votes are in and the membership has spoken. The US-based Cabin Crew of Norwegian have voted to join the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA). 269 Cabin Crew Voted with 59% approving the Solidarity Agreement. The Norwegian Cabin Crew will become the 20th chapter of the AFA.
Effective immediately, our workgroup has access to all of AFA’s resources including their legal department, communications, political network, and the support of 50,000 AFA members behind us.
What we have accomplished today is another milestone in our Union’s history. We have fought and survived numerous battles over the past couple of years. Even when Management backed us into a corner last month by not allowing us to collect union dues, we persevered. We survived by voting to affiliate with the largest and most powerful flight attendant union in the world–the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA).
