Dear APFA Members,
Today we noticed the Company of our intent to commence bargaining, triggering the provision in our contract (Section 40) for early openers one year prior to the amendable date of the Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement (JCBA), which is December 13, 2018.
We are proud to announce our fully seated negotiating committee and professional consultants:
APFA National Negotiators: Timothy Legeros, Kelly Hagan, Brian Morgan, Sara Corrigan, Mario St. Michel and Monica Wilfong. Our Professionals: Daniel Akins, Economist; Susannah Bender, Attorney; Susan French, Negotiator Consultant and Phillips & Richard, Attorneys. We will retain other professionals, firms and subject matter specialists as needed during the process.
All Unions on AA’s property are committed to supporting us during our bargaining process and we, in turn, will support them.
We have a lot of work ahead of us. With the strength of our 27,000 members we are confident that we will bargain the contract we deserve.
