Northwest Flight Attendants to Switch Unions

Flight attendants voted 62 to 38 percent to drop the PFAA and join the AFA.

Northwest wants to cut $195 million in flight attendant costs as it restructures in bankruptcy court. Flight attendants are the last holdouts among its union workers.

Flight attendants had been scheduled to finish voting later on Thursday on whether to affiliate the PFAA with the Transport Workers Union, but that vote was made moot by the union switch.
