What does the Negotiations Committee do?
The Negotiations Committee directly fights for the rights of all Horizon Flight Attendants by negotiating our contract (CBA), also, enhancements to our contract.
Keeping the focus on what Flight Attendants want is the key to successful negotiations. The Flight Attendant Negotiating Committee works hand-in-hand with professional negotiators every step of the way. The professional negotiators provide strategic advice and contract language expertise and the committee provides the hands-on experience to make sure the contract meets the needs of the Flight Attendants. Together, they negotiate the best wages, benefits and work rules – the best possible contract tailored to the unique needs of Flight Attendants at each AFA represented airline.

Flight attendants’ leader says employees at breaking point
Sara Nelson, the president of the Association of Flight Attendants, says too many employees — especially at the smaller regional airlines — struggle to get by. She says there could be wildcat strikes despite a federal law that makes it nearly impossible for airline unions to conduct legal walkouts.
