Flight attendants Jo Roby and Stacy Rewitzer have accused Frontier airlines of discrimination. The woman are saying that they were not allowed to pump breast milk while mid-flight and that the company has no parental leave policies in place so they’re forced to use sick and vacation days.
Te complaint has been filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Jo’s states that”
“As a result of Frontier’s actions, I have had to choose between performing my job and earning a living on the one hand, and continuing to breastfeed my child on the other.”
But Frontier released a statement saying that they’ve been operating under full compliance with the union contracts of the flight attendants, as well as the state and federal laws.
“We have made good-faith efforts to identify and provide rooms and other secure locations for use by breastfeeding flight attendants during their duty travel.”
