USAIR SHUTTLE FLIGHT ATTENDANTS PROTEST 13 YEARS WITHOUT PAY RAISE

 WASHINGTON, Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- USAir Shuttle flight attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA), AFL-CIO, will picket Monday, Nov. 22, to protest the company's delay in negotiating a fair contract with a pay increase, the AFA said. The Shuttle flight attendants have not had a pay raise since 1980.
 Picketing will take place from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the following locations:
 -- Washington: USAir Corporate Offices, Crystal Park 4, 2345 Crystal Drive, Arlington, VA 22227
 -- New York: LaGuardia Airport, directly across the street from the USAir Terminal entrance
 -- Boston: Logan International Airport, USAir Shuttle terminal.
 The 232 Shuttle flight attendants have been working under the old Eastern Airlines contract negotiated by the Transport Workers Union (TWU), who represented the attendants when the Shuttle was managed by Eastern Airlines and, later, by Donald Trump. AFA became the legal representative of the USAir Shuttle flight attendants in August 1992 when USAir and the USAir Shuttle operation were declared a "single transportation system" by the National Mediation Board. The flight attendants have been in negotiations for a new contract since 1989.
 "The Shuttle has gone through many management changes, yet Shuttle passengers have been able to rely on the flight attendants who consistently provide them with specialized, quality service," USAir MEC President Carol Austin stated. "It is time management recognized their contributions and negotiated a fair agreement with a decent paycheck."
 The Association of Flight Attendants, AFL-CIO, represents more than 33,000 flight attendants on 21 carriers and is the largest flight attendant union in the world.
