Looking Back at 2015 and Forward to 2016

As I reflect on the past year, I look back on the many challenges and changes we have faced as a workgroup, and I am proud that we are still standing; together.
There is not anyone out there that would say this past year has been easy, but we made it. We conquered the challenges with pride and professionalism. As your elected Base President, I want to say thank you. Let’s face it, we started a new job this year, with a new airline. We said goodbye to the airline at which many of us began our careers. Nothing about that is easy.
As we move into a new year, we look at 2016 as a new beginning to a bright and exciting future, working for the world’s largest airline. No doubt, we still have obstacles ahead of us as we move closer to FOI (Flight Attendant Operational Integration) in 2017, but we will face those challenges with the same integrity and professionalism.
I believe we will use our strength as a membership and as a family to stand together to face every challenge that is sent our way. The name on the airplane may have changed, the initials on our Union office may have changed, but the strength, drive, determination, and solidarity of our membership remains intact and alive. Nothing will break our spirit. We know where we came from, we know where we are, and we know where we are going. Most importantly, we know how to get there. We have persevered for decades, and we will continue to do so; together.
Cheers to you and yours. I wish you and your family a safe and Happy New Year!
In Solidarity,

Kim Kaswinkel
APFA PHL Base President
