Frontier attendants say they couldn't breastfeed on the job

DENVER (AP) - A year after four pilots accused Frontier Airlines of not doing enough to help pregnant or nursing employees, two flight attendants have filed similar discrimination complaints against the Denver-based discount carrier.

In documents filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Tuesday, flight attendants Jo Roby and Stacy Rewitzer say they were forced to take unpaid leave after having their children because they were forbidden from pumping their breast milk on flights and the airline didn't try to accommodate them.

They want Frontier to be required to provide places for them to pump on flights and in airports, allow nursing mothers to work temporarily in ground assignments and provide parental leave.

Frontier says it has identified and provided locations for attendants to pump milk. It says its policies comply with state and federal laws.
