Strike Authorization Ballot

Ballots were mailed to all members on Monday, April 19, 2010. All votes must be cast by 10:00 am Central time on Wednesday, May 19, 2010. If you have not received your ballot in a sufficient amount of time, please e-mail the Ballot Committee at [email protected]. The Constitutional Referendum passed by the membership this past January dictates that this and all future ballots be cast electronically, either by phone or Internet. Voting instructions are included in the ballot. Additional information and a link to questions and answers can be found on the Elections and Balloting page.

An overwhelming YES vote is crucial. It is our most powerful bargaining tool. Voting "no" on the strike ballot is saying "yes" to the company’s ridiculous concessionary proposals. Voting "yes" does not set the strike in motion or mean that we will actually go on strike. It does, however, present the threat. And that threat is as powerful if not more so than the strike itself. We need the power of YES.

A Skyword Express has been mailed to all Flight Attendants. Included in this pamphlet is detailed information about AA’s proposals and what it means to you. To preview a PDF of the document click here.

A Message from APFAís Negotiators

A new YouTube video has been released on our channel. The entire APFA Negotiating Team speaks of the companyís stonewalling and other antics at the bargaining table, and the importance of voting YES on the Strike Authorization Ballot. Please view the video and pass along to your friends, e-groups and Facebook.

APFA Road Shows

Attendance and enthusiasm surrounding our Road Shows has been tremendous. Much information is shared and all questions are answered. Next week we will be in ORD on the 27th, LAX on the 28th and SFO on the 29th. Please check the calendar for a complete list of locations and times. Please plan to attend.

APFA PhoneWatch

We are in the process of organizing PhoneWatch. We have used PhoneWatch during past negotiations and it was proven to be an invaluable tool for Flight Attendants to have their questions answered and concerns addressed. Volunteers will be needed to man the phones and other tasks. If you are interested in helping, please e-mail your name, phone number and e-mail address to DFW Flight Attendant Michael Truan at [email protected].
