Flight attendants who work for American Airlines planned to picket Tuesday at several airports across the United States, including Logan International Airport in Boston.

The picketing events are meant to draw attention to what the Association of Professional Flight Attendants called in a news release "management's continued rejection of contract proposals that will improve American's operational reliability and flight attendant work life."

The picketing events will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

American Airlines provided the following statement to NBC10 Boston:

"American’s flight attendants are the best in the business, and like all our team members, deserve to be paid well and competitively. We continue to meet regularly with the Association of Professional Flight Attendants to reach an agreement that benefits both our flight attendants and operation, and we respect the right of our flight attendants to participate in informational picketing. Today's picketing will have no impact on our operation."
