Flight attendants at USA3000 Airlines, based in Newtown Square, Delaware County, have voted overwhelmingly to join the Association of Flight Attendants, the union that represents flight attendants at 21 airlines.

The Washington-based union, which has more than 50,000 members, said the election was conducted by the National Mediation Board. Ninety-four of the eligible 114 USA3000 flight attendants voted in favor of union representation, said AFA-CWA international president Patricia Friend.

USA3000 is affiliated with Apple Vacations in Newtown Square.

The union, part of the Communications Workers of America, AFL-CIO, filed a petition in August for an election after a "strong majority" of USA3000 flight attendants signed representational cards.    - Linda Loyd
