As reported in a previous hotline, APFA members will have input in the process of selecting a new uniform that best meets the needs of Flight Attendants. APFA’s number one priority is to select a new uniform that is modern, comfortable, reliable, and most importantly, safe for all Flight Attendants.
Part of that process includes the selection of a Flight Service Uniform Advisory Team of up to 30 Flight Attendants from all bases as well as APFA union representatives.
As part of this team, Flight Attendants who choose to participate will be involved in decision-making regarding new fabrics, color and small design changes from the current patterns. They will also help coordinate and manage fabric testing, extensive wear testing and participate in additional decisions regarding the new uniform.
To apply for a position on the team, please submit an online application available on the Flight Service website no later than November 10, 2017. Special Assignment (SA) pay will apply with a time commitment of between one to three meetings per quarter over the next 12-18 months.
We encourage you to reach out to your Base President or FSM for more information on this opportunity.
APFA will make the final selection of Uniform Advisory Team members in the next few weeks with a goal of having the full team in place and functional by the end of November.
