8.29.23 – APFA LAX Base Brief – Final Chance to Have Your Voice Heard!

Final Chance to Have Your Voice Heard!

Tuesday, August 29, 2023

We are coming down to the final hours of the Strike Authorization Vote. A RESOUNDING YES vote tells the company that we are NOT HAPPY with all they have done to us and continue to do to us. Don’t relinquish YOUR power. VOTE YES. SEND A MESSAGE TO AA THAT WE WILL NOT TAKE THEIR DISMISSIVE, DISRESPECTFUL AND PUNITIVE TREATMENT ANYMORE.

A STRIKE VOTE is OUR RIGHT to try to level the playing field. AA wants it ALL their way.

Regardless of which legacy you come from, irrespective of how junior or how senior, regardless if you like APFA or not…this is YOUR future…this is MY future…and this is OUR future.

Yes, there are fears. We all depend on this job. But if we stick together, this company will be forced to take notice and recognize our importance, individually and collectively. We shut them down in 1993. They ALL said we wouldn’t…and they ALL said we couldn’t…but we COULD, and we DID.

THEY need to REMEMBER  that. Let’s remind them. VOTE YES.

Voting Closes at 11:59pm (Central Time)

Our LAX Contract Action Team, Evelyn Konen, Elizabeth Lozada and Maddisen Arguijo have worked very hard to ensure that this is a great event. You’ve seen them in the terminals; in the crew rooms; in email and on Facebook, doing FAR more than ever envisioned and FAR more than ever asked of them to ensure that we have a great turnout at LAX in both picketing and in our STRIKE VOTE.

We are, of course, not without our challenges. The draconian policy changes imposed on us locally by the TSA require that, if we are attending the picketing, we are NOT to use the airside employee bus from the AA employee parking lot UNLESS we are working a flight within two hours post-picketing.


In Solidarity,
