June 10, 2015
Today, the company informed APFA of its intent to now return the #9 position to 767 IPD flights at a Y/C load of 140. This change is effective June 13th. In its letter to APFA, the company cites “the unique challenges associated with the current inflight entertainment (IFE) in business class.” The company stated in its letter that this decision is temporary.
As a reminder, the company controls staffing, however, APFA retains the right to grieve any action, including a company-imposed reduction in staffing. In 2002, for example, APFA filed a Presidential Grievance on the company’s decision to remove a Flight Attendant from the 777-200. APFA prevailed in the grievance and the arbitrator ordered a service modification and understaffing back pay for Flight Attendants.
APFA is pleased that the company will be returning Position 9 to 767 IPD flights booked at 140+ in Main Cabin. Since June 1, we have already received detailed Flight Attendant reports regarding the IPD service staffed with only eight Flight Attendants. If you worked a 767 IPD Flight with eight flight attendants, please file a report about the increase in work load/decrease in inflight rest to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
