Pro-Life Flight Attendant Gets Huge Win In Court, Judge Orders Her Be Re-Hired


Southwest Airlines flight attendant Charlene Carter was fired by Southwest for criticizing her union president’s attendance at the Washington DC Women’s March

One of the event sponsors was Planned Parenthood.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported:

Back in 2017, Southwest airlines fired flight attendant Charlene Carter after she posted about abortion on social media. 

Carter criticized her union’s President, Audrey Stone, for attending the Women’s March in Washington, D.C. – The Women’s March received funding from Planned Parenthood.

Carter posted on Facebook at the time:

“This is what you supported during your paid leave with others at the Women’s March in D.C.,” Carter wrote in one Facebook message to Stone, according to the lawsuit. “… You truly are despicable in so many ways.”

She sued and was awarded $5 million from a federal jury in Texas back in July.

Now, she got a second major court win.

A Texas judge ordered that she be re-hired by Southwest Airlines.

Epoch Times reported:

A Texas federal judge has ordered Southwest Airlines to reinstate Charlene Carter, the flight attendant who made headlines after a jury ruled that she was unlawfully fired for expressing pro-life views and for criticizing her union.

“The jury also awarded front [or future] pay, but Carter would rather have her job back,” the judge wrote. “The Court reinstates Carter to her former position … If the Court opted for front pay over reinstatement, the court would complete Southwest’s unlawful scheme. Reinstatement is appropriate.”

Further, the judge explicitly ordered Southwest and Local 556 to share the jury’s verdict and Starr’s decision with all members of the union via email and to post the documents in conspicuous places for a 60-day period.

Starr’s order also forbids both the company and the union “from discriminating against Southwest flight attendants for their religious practices and beliefs, including—but not limited to—those expressed on social media and those concerning abortion.”

Charlene Carter stood up for her beliefs and won!
