09.24.03 – (LAA) – Foreign National Agreement, Rumors about AA Hiring Foreign National FAs

This is Liz Geiss, DFW InfoRep Captain, with an APFA Hotline Update for Wednesday, September 24, 2003.

Despite rumors to the contrary, the Company is not currently hiring foreign national Flight Attendants. In addition, per the Foreign National Agreement, there is a cap on the total number of Foreign Nationals the Company may employ. In accordance with provisions of the contract, the Company may only use Latin American-based foreign nationals to fly to or from Miami and only to the extent permitted by the Agreement. You may see foreign nationals deadheading to and from DFW in order to complete EPTs and RDTs. No changes were made to the Foreign National Agreement as part of the Restructuring Agreement. For additional information, please consult Appendix S on page 595 of the contract or call the Contract Representative on Duty at APFA Headquarters, extension #8171.

Thanks for calling.
