AMR SHAREHOLDER’S MEETING
As previously reported, APFA attended the annual AMR Shareholders Meeting on Wednesday this week. Beth and Freddy Merriman’s son Ian surprised the AMR shareholders with a wonderfully written speech on behalf of all of us at APFA. Ian did an EXCELLENT job representing us! The youtube video and a PDF copy of his speech are on the front page of the APFA website. Please visit www.www.apfa.org to see what Ian had to say.

NEGOTIATIONS UPDATE
Mediated sessions are set to resume in Washington, DC on May 27th, following a full Team meeting on the 26th. The table Team spent this week preparing for those sessions. When APFA President Laura Glading, and Members of the Team conduct Membership Outreach Meetings in June, they will be sharing some of this valuable information

CONGRATULATIONS SOUTHWEST!
Southwest Airlines Flight Attendants voted 89% in favor of the contract which provides annual pay raises of up to 3 %, an increase in 401(k) contributions, and improved work rules and benefits. Congratulations to our brothers and sisters at TWU Local 556!

It’s interesting to note that Southwest Airlines was able to reach a tentative agreement with their Flight Attendants in just nine (9) months, while APFA has been negotiating for over a year now…further reinforcing what WE already know; investing in your employees is the way to run a business.

MEMBERSHIP OUTREACH
Laura Glading, and Members of the Negotiating Team, will be visiting every base during the month of June. Important information regarding negotiations; where we are in the negotiations process, and just what will come next, will be shared at these meetings. It’s up to you to get informed and motivated should we have to mobilize ourselves and turn up the heat on American. Please visit www.www.apfa.org to see a schedule of times and locations for the Membership Outreach Meetings.

COMMUNICATION
Robo calls announcing the Membership Outreach Visits were made earlier this week. If you did not receive yours, please make sure your contact information is up to date in the APFA database. NOW, more than ever, having the correct and most up-to-date information will be vital to our success in achieving a contract we all deserve! Visit www.www.apfa.org and click on Member Services to update your information.

ATTENTION: PLEASE TAKE NOTE!
The APFA has become aware of a concerted effort by flight service and the company’s security department to monitor Flight Attendants that have been notified of missing liquor deposits. We have confirmed that the security department is monitoring liquor safe locations and observing targeted Flight Attendants making liquor deposits.

In addition, AA security is doing onboard rides and monitoring targeted Flight Attendants. Some tactics have included the use of marked money, observation of individual F/A sales, and discreetly observing the Flight Attendant making scheduled deposits. At the completion of the trip, crews are being held and interviewed. Should you be involved in an investigation, contact APFA immediately.

Should you have questions or concerns on liquor procedures, information is available in your in-flight manual. You may also contact your APFA representative with specific questions.
