Representing the Flight Attendants of American Airlines

3.30.12 – (LAA) – Negotiations Update, Executive Bonuses, Picketing Event, EAP, National Coordinator Announcements, Division Reps

NEGOTIATIONS UPDATE

Negotiate08@apfa.org

The court held a scheduling conference on Thursday, March 29, concerning the motions filed by the company to reject all of its collective bargaining agreements. The parties have not yet been able to agree on a schedule of hearing dates. Rather than set a fixed schedule at this point, the court has ordered the parties to return on Monday, April 2. At that point, we believe a final schedule for the submission of briefs and hearing dates will be entered as an order of the court.

RUMOR CONTROL – EXECUTIVE BONUSES
communications@apfa.org

Recently there has been a rumor that the bankruptcy judge authorized the company to pay the annual Executive Bonuses. While we never know what the judge may do in the future as of the writing of this hotline that rumor is false.

MEMBERSHIP ACTION

The APFA Board of Directors met today via conference call and determined that a picketing event will be held on the first day of the Section 1113 court hearings. Once that date is determined more information will be provided.

EAP ASSISTANCE

Flight Attendants that attended the informational bankruptcy base meetings were given critical information on how stress manifests itself in our lives, what we can do to cope with it, and how to identify when we, or someone we know, need professional help. APFA has the people, the expertise, and the resources to help each other through these challenging times, just as we have done in the past. Please reach out to Patty French, APFA EAP Specialist, at 817-540-0108 ext. 8701 or eap@apfa.org if you or a colleague is in need of help. We are here for each other.
