CWN Editor's Note: Charlene Carter, a former Southwest flight attendant, publicly criticized the Transportation Workers Union of America’s pro-abortion stance in 2017. A union leader told the company that Carter had violated corporate policy against bullying, and Carter was fired.

A federal jury has awarded Carter $5.3 million: $4.15 million from Southwest Airlines, and $1.15 million from Transportation Workers Union of America Local 556. An appeal of the verdict is expected.
