Flight attendants at the pre-merger US Airways have approved an agreement that will determine how the combined flight attendants at the new American Airlines will be represented.

Under the agreement, the unions representing the flight attendants pre-merger at US Airways and American Airlines will form a joint negotiating committee that will negotiate with American's management for a new contract.

The Association of Professional Flight Attendants (APFA) represented pre-merger American flight attendants and the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA) represented pre-merger US Airways flight attendants.

Under a previously struck deal, the two unions had agreed that APFA will represent the combined workgroup at the new American.

"By June 9th, APFA and AFA will file a single carrier application with the National Mediation Board, which is the first step to the NMB certifying APFA as the bargaining representative of the combined flight attendant workgroup at the new American Airlines," says APFA.
