FACT: This week the APFA BOD and the US Airways MEC were briefed on the progress of negotiations including the 11 Tentative Agreements (TAs) reached by the Joint Negotiating Team (JNC). The Negotiations Protocol Agreement (NPA) provides for 150 days of bargaining with a minimum of ten face-to-face sessions each month through September 19th. While TAs have only been reached on non-economic items the team feels very optimistic on the progress at the table and believe a Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement (JCBA) will be reached for the membership to vote on. The JNC will meet next week with the company continuing their negotiations on scheduling items.

FACT: The Domestic and International divisions are on track to be combined in 2Q 2015. For scheduling and bidding purposes all Flight Attendants will be considered Domestic and will bid from either division. Open time will reflect all open sequences at that base whether the sequence is International or Domestic. It is anticipated that all Flight Attendants will be overwater qualified and discussions continue between APFA and AA on how best to accomplish training for the approximately 3,200 Flight Attendants not subject to Reserve.

FACT: Preferential Bidding at US Airways is currently undergoing “mock” bidding. Some of the benefits they are seeing during their trial is the ability to keep a standing bid on file so Flight Attendants will no longer worry about forgetting to bid, the ability for transparency in the bidding process to see why the Flight Attendant didn’t hold her/his requested trips, and what seniority did hold those trips by using the “view reason report,” as well as ranking items from layover cities, days off, positions, etc…
