The APFA National Ballot Committee has continued our focus over the last few years on making several key improvements to the balloting processes and continuing to modernize behind the scenes. We are pleased to be able to make some positive changes in both the Willingness-to-Serve form as well as some of the election processes for the upcoming 2024 National Officer Elections.

The National Ballot Committee policies and procedures are guided by the APFA Constitution , Policy Manual, and the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959 (LMRDA) guidelines set forth by the Department of Labor. Every change and update are carefully reviewed by APFA’s Legal Department with frequent consultation with our local representative at the Department of Labor.

2024 National Officer Elections Timeline

Virtual Candidate Forum

On December 8, 2023, at 1:00pm (CT), the National Ballot Committee will hold a virtual candidate forum. All candidates are strongly encouraged to attend to learn more about the election process and ask questions. Candidates will be sent instructions on how to join after the Willingness-to-Serve closes.

Voting Method: Paper Ballots vs. Electronic Voting

For the upcoming election, we will be using the traditional method of Paper/Mail Balloting. Despite the progress we have made in transitioning back to electronic voting for representative elections, both through our vendor and the internal policy updates that addressed concerns raised in the previous election with DOL (Department of Labor) involvement, there remain significant ambiguities and lack of guidance from the DOL regarding electronic voting for primary and run-off elections for representatives at this point in time.

However, we remain fully committed to utilizing electronic voting for all non-representative elections whenever feasible.

Please ensure that your Paper Ballot reaches the designated P.O. Box by January 26th, 2024, at 10:00am (CT). Duplicate Ballot Package requests will be handled through the Help Desk at YesElections or via the APFA website.

Candidate Booklets

Candidate booklets will be available to all members on the Union Electionspage of the APFA website on December 27, 2023, the day the ballot packages are mailed. On the voter information page included with your ballot, a QR code will also be printed that you can scan, which will take you directly to the candidate booklets. Candidate information will be available to you throughout the balloting period. You may print the information from the website.

Candidate Eligibility

Candidates who submit a Willingness-to-Serve for a National Officer position, must be a member in good standing per APFA Constitution Article II, Section 4.A-C – Article VI, Section 4.B & 4.D by the close of that process on December 7, 2023, at 10:00am (CT).

Voter Eligibility

To be eligible to vote, each APFA member must be a member in good standing no later than five (5) days prior to the date the votes are counted (“balloting date”). The primary balloting date is January 26, 2024; therefore, you must be in good standing by January 22, 2024. The Dues Department endeavors to run the monthly billing on the 15th of every month. Members’ eligibility will update after the monthly billing date; therefore, it is strongly advised you check your membership status and dues by logging into APFA.org on or after that date to confirm your eligibility.

A member will also be eligible to vote if on an official APFA payment plan that was executed at least thirty (30) days prior to the balloting date which is December 27, 2023, and at least one payment has been made. You can set up an official APFA payment plan by contacting the dues department at [email protected] or by calling (817) 540-0108.

If there is the need for a run-off election, the balloting date is March 6, 2024, and you must be dues current by March 1, 2024, or on an official APFA payment plan that was executed by February 5, 2024, for any run-off election, per APFA Policy Manual, Section 2.G.7.f.

Update Your Address With APFA

The National Ballot Committee reminds every member to make sure that APFA has their correct mailing address to receive a ballot package. Even though you may have updated your address with the Company, American Airlines does not share that information with APFA. This is especially important for members who moved or relocated recently.

Update your mailing or contact information by clicking here. If you need assistance with logging in to update your information, please email [email protected].

If you have issues logging into the APFA website, please visit the support page by clicking here. You may also contact the Membership Department at 817-540-0108.
