Flight attendants protest contract negotiations
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (WSVN) -- Airline employees protested in hopes of reaching a new labor deal.
Dozens of Spirit Airlines' flight attendants protested in Hollywood, in hopes of reaching a new labor agreement.
They said they've been trying to reach out a deal for years. "We've been in contract negotiations for five years, we want a contract," said Association of Flight Attendants Amy Drinkhouse. "The company states that they are committed to a fair and equitable contract with the flight attendants, well its been over five years and the time is now."
The workers rallied outside the Westin Diplomat, where the airline's CEO was attending a conference.
They said if a deal doesn't eventually get reached, they're prepared to strike.
