9423 members support Union bargaining committee at Piedmont Airlines
Passenger service agents at Piedmont Airlines are mobilizing for a fair contract. Bargaining between the CWA bargaining committee and Piedmont began on September 26, and members participated in bargaining kickoff events at stations across the country. Pictured above are CWA Local 9423 members at the San Luis Obispo County airport.
In a bargaining priorities survey, passenger service agents at Piedmont ranked base pay, paid time off, and safety as their top concerns to address in a new contract. On December 31, 2022, Courtney Edwards – a Piedmont passenger service agent in Montgomery, Ala., and a valued member of CWA Local 3645 – died in a tragic on-the-job accident. Following advocacy from CWA members, OSHA found Piedmont guilty of a serious breach of safety and fined the company the maximum amount allowed by law. Together, passenger service agents at Piedmont stand united and ready to fight for a contract that will provide the safety, fair wages, and work-life balance they deserve.
