BOS Meeting Scheduled
The Bankruptcy Information Meeting for BOS/BOSI has been scheduled:
Tuesday January 31 – Boston
Embassy Suites Logan Airport
Meetings are open to all members in good standing. Retirees wishing to attend one of the Base Meetings, and were dues current at the time of retirement, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org so that eligibility can be verified in advance. Only Retired Flight Attendants need to contact APFA prior to the meeting.
During these meetings, we will share what we know now and what to expect; we will address your concerns and answer your questions. I’ll be joining members of the APFA Negotiating Team, Retirement Department, Legal Counsel and your Local Base Leadership.†As some of the bankruptcy proceedings may be scheduled suddenly and we can expect last minute changes, additional Bankruptcy Information Base Visits will most likely be announced on short notice.
