APFA BOS Base Brief – December 2021

Another year has come and gone, and oh, what a year it has been. We welcomed back to BOS our furloughed and EVLOA Flight Attendants, and saw BOS headcount grow due to 65 new hires arriving in November and December. Thank you so much for your kindness, generosity, and professionalism throughout this past year. We know it has been extremely challenging and APFA BOS truly appreciates all of you.

And now, onto the Boston Base Brief:

Surveys

The APFA Negotiations Survey closes on December 10th, at 1700CT. Everyone should be filling this out. This will help our Negotiating Committee determine what items are most important to our Members. Make your voice heard.

The LHR Hotel Survey closes on December 29th, at 1200CT. If you have worked an LHR trip, please offer your input on the current hotels. Also, please refrain from sharing hotel information, especially the address or general location on social media.
