IMG_2191Flight attendants at Mesa Airlines, which operates regional flights for American Airlines and United Airlines, will soon vote on whether to strike against the airline.

The union representing the cabin crews, the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, said that the move follows “years of stalled negotiations.”

“Mesa Flight Attendants are falling further behind with substandard wages. We need wage increases now,” said Heather Stevenson, the union’s president.

The union will send strike vote ballots to some 700 members at the end of February and the results are expected to be announced at the end of March.

Founded in 1980, Mesa Airlines operates over 600 flights each day to over 115 cities with a fleet of Bombardier and Embraer aircraft.
