Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Training

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is the procedure for settling disputes without litigation, such as arbitration, mediation, or negotiation. ADR allows APFA and the Company to come up with more creative solutions, providing the opportunity for a fast and informal settlement of the dispute.

Personal Resuscitation Masks

Personal Resuscitation Masks are issued to each Flight Attendant and are required equipment when reporting for duty, even though they are provisioned onboard each aircraft as part of the emergency equipment.

Under the JCBA Section 34.U., if you use your mask as part of an emergency while on duty – or its replacement is necessary due to normal wear & tear, it shall be replaced at no cost to the Flight Attendant.

– Jeffrey Ewing, APFA National Safety & Security Chair,

You can bid in UBL for red flag sequences

If there is an open speaker or purser position on a trip you’re currently working and UBL will not allow a position move up since it’s a red flag trip, call Crew Scheduling. They’ll unset the red flag indicator and run you back through the UBL to award you the speaker or purser position. If more than one flight attendant follows this procedure for the same sequence/position, it’ll be awarded in seniority order. This only applies for sequences with a departure with more than 2 hours out or 3 hours for co-terminals; otherwise it’s assigned to a reserve.

Renee Mayer, JCBA Specialist
