Dear APFA Member,
 
Today marks another significant milestone in our merger.
 
Since September 2, 2014, when APFA was certified as the representative of the combined LUS and LAA Flight Attendant workgroups, APFA has been sharing certain responsibilities of representing our membership with AFA-CWA, the union that represented the Flight Attendants at US Airways. In order to enable AFA to administer provisions that were carried over from the LUS Red Book and process grievances that had arisen under the US Airways/AFA contract, and based on a written agreement (the “Maintenance Agreement”) between the two unions, APFA has been forwarding to AFA all dues money collected from LUS Flight Attendants.
 
Thanks to the tireless efforts of many union reps from each legacy workgroup, and with the help and support of the LUS representatives, APFA is now well prepared to take on all representation responsibilities under the Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement (JCBA). APFA will continue our efforts in legislative and other arenas to promote and protect our membership and our profession.
 
AFA will continue to process the outstanding grievances that were filed under the US Airways/AFA contract. To ensure that AFA has the financial resources to properly see those grievances through, and, consistent with the Maintenance Agreement, APFA will forward to AFA the necessary amount of money from dues paid by LUS Flight Attendants.
 
This is an exciting step for the entire membership and the timing is excellent. Next week, the company expects to receive a single operating certificate from the FAA. That brings Flight Attendants a step closer to taking full advantage of the merger’s benefits.
 
Speaking for everyone at APFA headquarters, we are very excited about this step, about our futures, and about working toward an even stronger union representing the Flight Attendants of the world’s largest airline. Thank you to everyone who has helped make this transition as smooth as possible. The enormous tasks related to this merger have required patience, diligence, and hard work on the part of many Flight Attendants. We continue to be humbled by the dedication of our workgroup and union representatives.

In Unity,

APFA President Laura Glading
APFA Vice President Marcus Gluth
APFA Secretary Jeff Pharr
APFA Treasurer Greg Gunter
