Save the Date!

Systemwide Picketing
Tuesday, January 24th, 2023
11:00 am-1:00 pm (local time)

  • Reserve numbers are through the roof, despite a significant drop in absenteeism. Management does not care!
  • Coverage Needed (CN) dates were nearly non-existent in December due to an improvement in Holiday and Incentive Day pay. Management inflated reserve numbers even more for January, further disrespecting and disrupting Flight Attendant work/life balance. Management does not care!
  • Management continues to ignore negotiated contractual Dispute Resolution and Grievance language in Sections 30 and 31 of our contract, preventing Flight Attendant grievances from being heard! Management does not care!
  • American has restored onboard food and beverage service to pre-pandemic levels but refuses to adequately staff our cabins and address the staffing problem at the negotiating table. Flight Attendants are exhausted, and our passengers expect and deserve more!

#HaveYouHadEnough ?

Thousands of Flight Attendants took to picket lines in all eleven bases on November 15th, bringing our fight to the media and the public.

We have only just begun. Please join us on Tuesday, January 24th, 2023, as we stand up to this management and secure improvements to our compensation, work rules, and work/life balance. Stay tuned for more detailed information on January’s systemwide picket and more ACTION Events through the winter and spring.

What can I do now to help my Union secure improvements at the negotiating table?

Now is the time to sign up for the Contract ACTION Team. During our last event, Contract ACTION Team members were instrumental in ensuring the success of the picket: they reached out to government representatives in their area, assembled signs, helped APFA Base Leadership secure picketing permits at each airport, received shipments of lanyards and t-shirts for each picketing location, and spread the word to our co-workers in airports and hotel lobbies across the system. Their input and assistance were invaluable.

This is our contract: our work rules, our benefits, our work/life balance. Management needs to see 25,000 Flight Attendants standing solidly behind our Negotiating Committee.
