AFA FILES SUIT AGAINST UNITED AIRLINES

 AFA FILES SUIT AGAINST UNITED AIRLINES
 WASHINGTON, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- The Association of Flight


Attendants, AFL-CIO, filed suit last week against United Airlines, alleging a contract violation in connection with the recent Air Wisconsin acquisition.
 "Under the scope clause of our contract with United, all flying must be done by flight attendants on the United seniority list," explained A. Diane Tucker, president of AFA's Master Executive Council at United. "This situation should go to arbitration, allowing us to properly enforce our contract."
 According to Tucker, the company has denied arbitration in this matter and refused to abide by the scope clause of the contract. A company reply to the AFA suit is due next month.
 The largest flight attendant union in the world, the Association of Flight Attendants, AFL-CIO, represents more than 32,000 flight attendants at 20 different carriers, including both United Airlines and Air Wisconsin.
