Union Gains At Virgin America

Virgin America’s distinction of being the only non-unionised airline in the US has ended following a vote by cabin crew in favour of representation. Almost 60 per cent of flight attendants voted to join the Transport Workers Union of America, which will begin contract negotiations on their behalf this autumn. “As the airline grows and becomes an increasingly profitable and larger public company, we also want our members to be recognised for their contribution to the airline’s success,” TWU International president Harry Lombardo said.
