FACT or Fiction:
Q: I heard we will be combining International and Domestic operations and that all Flight Attendants will need to be Internationally trained?

A: Fact: The combined operation is on track to take place on May 2, 2015. All Flight Attendants (approximately 3,200 of the remaining Flight Attendants not subject to Reserve) will be over-water trained but the type and length of training for those not subject to Reserve has yet to be determined.  Discussions are on-going and we expect a decision will made and announced shortly.  As with last year there will not be any drafting for the months of November and December for overwater quals.

We are looking to add new FACT Reps to the program as we count down to the end of Joint Negotiations and a JCBA.  Being a FACT Rep will provide you with direct access to the negotiators through the FACT Rep Coordinator, conference calls with Laura Glading, a FACT Rep only section on the APFA website, and a FACT Rep pin identifying you to other crew members as someone who knows the FACTs.  If you are interested or know someone who is interested please sign up by clicking on this link

Thank you for being a member of the APFA FACT (Flight Attendant Communications Team). As a member of FACT we ask that you please share this information with your co-workers in person, via email, and posted to social media to ensure everyone is getting the FACTs.  If you have any questions please email me at [email protected].
