FROM EAP REPRESENTATIVE PATTY FRENCH
We have all made difficult sacrifices in hopes of avoiding working for a bankrupt carrier and yet here we are. No one wanted this. We all have plenty of anxiety and questions about what is going to happen to our jobs, our pay, pensions and work rules. It will take time to understand what bankruptcy will mean to our work lives. It is easy to feel like a passenger on trip we never wanted to take. In the coming months, it will be essential to have a stress plan in place to help regulate emotions and manage stress.
A Self Care Document has been posted on both the Bankruptcy Information and EAP pages of APFA.org with tips on how to manage stress. The APFA EAP Desk is available for confidential discussions or to help you with a referral to a health professional in your area – 817.540.0108 x8701.
The 2011 Third Quarter Meeting of the APFA Executive Committee is scheduled to begin on Tuesday December 13, 2011 at the DFW Hyatt. The meeting is open to all members in good standing.
