2.05.18 – Retirement Seminar,Vacation Bidding, JSIC Visit, Annual Convention

Hello PHX!

Here are some upcoming events and dates to remember! MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!

RETIREMENT SEMINAR MARCH 6, 2018

Please join us in welcoming back Ron Harris and Patrick Hancock as they present their very popular Retirement Seminar:

The seminar will take place 11AM-2PM  in the British Airways Room (located in Terminal 4, above Gate B22 on the Mezzanine Level).

Whether you are a new hire or you have been flying for fifty years, this is a must-attend event. The information provided spans from the start of your career to the end.

These popular and informative briefings cover a wide range of topics, including:

  • 401(k)
  • Pensions
  • Retiree Travel
  • Medicare

The APFA Retirement Handout, “Good Slide!”, is distributed to each participant. The handout follows the slide show presentation, and also contains checklists and contact information to make sure you get everything you have coming to you.

You should attend your first Retirement Seminar no later than 10 years before you think you will retire, but it’s never too early to attend one of these meetings! If you’d like a copy of the “Good Slide!” handout, it’s also available for download from the APFA Retirement Page. The handout is updated throughout the year, and the most current version is always on the website.

Our new Flight Attendants on the property have no type of retirement other than 401k or other personal investments. Ron and Patrick can put you on the right track to save for your retirement.

We cannot recommend this seminar enough. If you have attended, you know what a great job they do. Tell your co-workers how much information is provided in these three hour seminars.

VACATION BIDDING

Vacation bidding for the 2018/2019 fiscal year opened on January 27th at noon CT, and will close on February 27th at noon CT. Awards will be published March 5th at noon CT.

Second round bidding will open on March 5th at noon CT and close on March 13th at noon CT. Awards will be published March 20th by noon CT. If you have any questions about your vacation accrual you may call Vacations at 480-693-1936.

We have had some questions about how filler days are paid. If you attach a filler day to vacation to make seven or more days, you will be paid 4:00 per day. If you attach a filler day to a set of vacation days to make seven days, you will receive 4:00 per day.

If you bid filler days that are stand-alone, they are paid at 3:30 per day. If you bid filler days in a month in which you have seven vacation days, but they do not touch those days, they are paid at 3:30 per day. A good rule of thumb—if you want 4:00 per day for a filler day, it has to touch or make a group of seven vacation days or more.

JSIC VISIT MARCH 16, 2018

If you attend anything in the month of March, this is the one! Get informed and prepared for all that’s coming!

The seminar will take place 11am to 3PM  in the British Airways Room (located in Terminal 4, above Gate B22 on the Mezzanine Level). Learn about TTS, ETB, FOI, ROTA and ROTA D

APFA ANNUAL CONVENTION

The APFA Annual Convention will be held in Charlotte, NC. All members in good standing are not only welcome, but encouraged to attend.

Hilton Charlotte University Place
February 27th- March 2nd
9am-5pm

MEETING WITH YOUR FLIGHT SERVICE MANAGER (FSM)

Any time you are notified by phone, email, or CBS that your FSM would like to talk with you or meet with you for any reason, you are entitled to Union representation. Calling us after the fact makes it very difficult to ‘un-ring’ the bell.

Please give us a call in advance of the meeting—sometimes the issue can be resolved without an actual face to face meeting. If you are required to meet with your FSM, please call us as soon as you have the date and time so we can assign a representative and add the meeting to our calendars.
