Striking TWA flight attendants reaffirmed their commitment to the walkout during a national teleconference of rank and file membership, the union announced. In a poll, 97% of union members said the company’s offer was not worth voting on, said Cynthia deFiguiredo, a spokeswoman for the Independent Federation of Flight Attendants. The teleconference, held Tuesday in seven cities, was seen by 2,400 of the 5,700 striking flight attendants. The flight attendants began their strike March 7 in a dispute over wages and hours.
