IMG_1471 (1)Flight attendants at Hawaiian Airlines are preparing to vote on whether to strike, with a vote count scheduled for November 20.

The union representing the workers, the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, says that flight attendant pay has fallen in comparison with the rest of the industry while the cost of living continues to rise.

Flight attendants are also planning an informational picket line at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport in Honolulu on October 9 to convey their feelings to management.

The airline said it remains “focused on working with AFA negotiators through federal mediation” and that it hopes to finalize a new contract that will recognize employee contributions to the company’s success.

The strike vote comes following three years of stalled contract negotiations.

The result of the vote will be announced in November following the vote count.
