12.20.22 – APFA ORD Base Brief – Tuesday, December 20th, 2022

Tuesday, December 20, 2022

Hello, Chicago!

December is always a busy time of year, and this year is no exception. As we approach the end of the year, there are a few important topics and pieces of helpful information that we want to make you are aware of. Let us continue to stand together and support each other as we navigate this busy time of year. Thank you for everything you do- we wish you a happy and healthy holiday season.

Systemwide Picketing Continues!

There were well over 100 people from all different backgrounds who attended the Chicago informational picket held last month, thousands nationwide. Negotiations continue to move at a glacial pace. Between the last informational picket, and we when we get the contract we deserve, there will be more and more unity events allowing us a public forum to express our frustrations, and tell the company we are ready!

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


Between now and January 24th, keep an eye out for more information. We know it will be cold, but Chicago is resilient, and a little cold weather won’t dampen our spirit! See you there!

Banked Point

The recent holiday incentive period was November 20th-November 27th. If you worked a trip, or served all your reserve assignments with no chargeable absences in this time, you should have received your incentive point by now.

To check your MyView: Jetnet -> Flight Service -> MyView -> Click the number next to “banked points” to see the period in which the most recent point was earned. Any questions or concerns regarding the incentive point, follow up with the Chicago AFSM joint email as soon as possible. Send an email to [email protected].

November Holiday Pay

On December 12th, the company communicated via CCI that they are in the final stages of processing the hours owed for the November incentive period. They are targeting to have a special check processed by the end of next week which should be visible in ePays on/around December 23rd. When this statement is visible, if you notice anything you feel to be incorrect, immediately file a Direct Connect to bring the issue forward to the appropriate departments.

Jury Duty

You might have seen a recent hotline from the APFA Contract and Scheduling department alerting our members to the Company’s disregard of the JCBA with regards to Jury Duty. Keep this in mind in case you are summoned to Jury Duty and wrongfully denied your contractual compensation. If you experience this violation, please reach out to one of us to ensure we file a grievance on your behalf.
