On September 15, the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA) announced that it had reached a tentative agreement (TA) for a first contract with Omni Air. The tentative deal comes nearly 5 years after AFA was elected to represent the less-than-400 flights attendants of the charter airline. While the flight attendants have yet to vote on the deal, AFA explained that if it was rejected:
The National Mediation Board would require us to define a limited number of issues to change from the current TA before considering scheduling any sessions. These issues would need to be common priorities of the entire work group and we would need to demonstrate our desire to reach an agreement through action such as a strike vote. Essentially, we would be stating that we are willing to strike over those issues and it would require a 90% or greater strike vote to be effective.
Details of the TA have not yet been published.
