When necessary, APFA enters into a Letter of Agreement (LOA) to supplement contractual language or provide clarity on matters that were not contemplated during collective bargaining. LOA’s are enforced similarly to our negotiated contractual language.
In the event AA or APFA deem an LOA may be necessary, the APFA National President and related APFA Department Chairs will meet with AA Labor Relations to discuss terms of a potential agreement.
While the APFA National President signs each Letter of Agreement, she does not sign Letters of Agreement without the approval of the voting Board of Directors (your Base Presidents). Your Base Presidents are included in all discussions for any potential Letters of Agreement, and no agreement will move forward without the majority of the voting Board of Director’s approval.
For a list of the signed Letters of Agreement, visit the APFA National President’s page here.
