1.25.23 – APFA ORD Base Brief – January 25, 2023

Wednesday, January 25, 2023

Hello, Chicago!

We wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude for the incredible turnout at our informational picket yesterday. With close to 200 members in attendance throughout the day, it was the biggest picket yet and we couldn’t have done it without your support.

We were inspired and thankful to see members from other unions standing with us, including the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA), Retired Teachers Association of Chicago (RTAC), and Allied Pilots Association (APA). Flight Attendants on layovers joined us. We had brand new Flight Attendants with us. We had family members. Friends. It was a full house!

Together, we were loud and strong, and even caught the attention of management who came out to see what all the fuss was about.

Our billboard truck brought our message to O’Hare and the entire city of Chicago! Our demands for the contract we deserve spilled into the city – through social media, billboard trucks, the news and passengers stopping us and offering their support.

Thank you for braving the chilly weather to make your voices heard. Your dedication and commitment to our cause did not go unnoticed; American Airlines heard us.

Together, we will continue to fight for the contract which we deserve.

Thank you to the Chicago Contract ACTION Team– Alyssa Kovacs, Katrina Fraley, Peter Esau and John McCullough, for their work in putting this amazing event together.

Thank you, Chicago, stay amazing!

In Solidarity,
