Negotiations Update

Watch your mail for a letter from APFA President Laura Glading and the Negotiating Team outlining OUR TURN Around Campaign. Part 4 of the Membership Outreach Videos currently on the www.www.apfa.org website outlines the campaign. (click here) Everyone must be informed and engaged. Your Negotiating Team needs you!

Click here for a ëPoint-Counterpointí document that outlines the truth about the companyís proposals. Please print, carry and share the information with your crews. After the company released their version of their proposals, we received calls and e-mails from a few Flight Attendants that have already begun to drink the Kool-AAid.

During the Road Shows in í08, we asked everyone not to visit the companyís website as they will attempt to negotiate directly with the membership by sugar-coating their proposals. They tried to do it in í93 and will try to do it again this time. DO NOT fall victim to this underhanded form of negotiating. APFA should be your only source of negotiations information. If you have questions, hear rumors or need additional information about negotiations, e-mail us here in the InfoRep Department or the Negotiating Team directly at [email protected] or click here for a web form.

We will return to the bargaining table on Monday, August 31. With OUR TURN Around Campaign in full swing, we will send the message to management that we are unified and will stand for nothing less than the contract we all deserve.

APFA Virtual Picket Line

During the Base Meetings in June, we announced a Virtual Picket Line would be launched in August. The site is now live and already has received over 2,000 supporters. With 18,000 Flight Attendants, there is no reason we shouldnít have at least that many on the site. If you havenít already, log-on to www.APFAvirtualPicket.com and sign up! Please share the link with your family and friends. While this will not replace actual picketing and leafleting at airports in the future, it will provide a round-the-clock presence as negotiations proceed.

Facebook and Twitter

APFA now has a page on both Facebook and Twitter. We have had many requests to create these pages and are happy to announce they are live and ready. We will continue to communicate via the APFA Hotline and Skyword. Facebook and Twitter will be additional avenues to get information to the membership.

Our Twitter Name is ñ APFAunity ñ and this will be the only official APFA Twitter account. We are listed on Facebook as the Association of Professional Flight Attendants.
