Wake Up American!

American Airlines Flight Attendants Picket AA Headquarters

Thursday Morning, August 30  

 

Dallas, TX (Aug. 29) — In any early morning wake up call, members of the Association of Professional Flight Attendants (APFA) will descend upon American Airline’s Headquarters 1 building tomorrow. “It’s time for our company to wake up and understand exactly what’s going on with their 27,000 front line employees,” said APFA National President Lori Bassani.  “We are sick from toxic uniforms, sick from cabin fume events and sick of being given the run-around with the flawed implementation and improperly programmed new scheduling systems.”

Flight Attendants are set for full operational integration (FOI) in October of this year. Monumental changes have been introduced to the work force in the areas of scheduling and contractual issues.

As of FOI, flight attendants from both legacies (Us Airways and American) will work under the same collective bargaining agreement and a new attendance policy. “The new sick policy is extremely punitive and does not take into account the unique working conditions flight attendants endure daily. We are exposed to ill passengers, foreign food borne illnesses, toxic cabin air, unhealthy sleep patterns, radiation exposure, and flight attendants cross multiple time zones, to name just a few,” said President Bassani.

APFA members will gather at AA Headquarters 1 in Dallas Ft. Worth at 7:30am. They will be protesting the disrespect and disregard shown to the flight attendants as American Airlines plows ahead to FOI.

Picket signs and mobile billboards will be displaying these images during the informational picketing event:
