FACT: APFA and AFA Reps will be in their respective Operations on August 18-19 to discuss the negotiations process and timeline. Please stop by with any questions as we mark the final 30 days of the 150 days of negotiations. These two days will be primarily devoted to educating the membership on the process and prospective timeline for achieving a Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement (JCBA).  
 
FACT: Negotiations continue this week in DFW on Scheduling and Scheduling-related items. Approximately 37 days with 15 face-to-face meetings remain in the 150 days of negotiating as agreed to in the Negotiations Protocol Agreement. To view highlights of the T/As reached to date and see which Articles/Sections were used in the Adopt and Go process by the JNC, click here.   
 
FACT: As a reminder, once a JCBA is reached, it will be put before the combined membership for ratification.  Should the membership not ratify the agreement, or if a Tentative Agreement could not be reached, only then would it go to Binding Arbitration. Only contractual items remaining in dispute would be subject to binding arbitration should a Tentative JCBA not be reached.  The Arbitration Panel’s decision would be final and not subject to Flight Attendant ratification. 

 
FACT: The combined seniority list has been posted here.  As a reminder, we will continue to use our current seniority as reflected on our HI1 until we achieve all of the following:

  • A Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement 
  • A final determination from the NMB expected on or around  August 28th that APFA is the representative
  • A single crew management system that incorporates operations (FOS).

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 and following the directions for sign-up. 

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].
