4.24.24 – Reminder: Illegal Self-Help Tactics

Illegal Self-Help Tactics

Under the Railway Labor Act (RLA), we are prohibited from resorting to “self-help” until the National Mediation Board officially releases us and after the thirty-day cooling-off period concludes. “Self-help” includes social media posts containing the following:

  • coordinating sickouts.
  • refusal to pick up open time, including red flag.
  • harming American’s revenue streams, including onboard credit card solicitation.

Individual Flight Attendants may be disciplined and terminated for advocating for “self-help” outside the RLA provisions. At American, Pilots and Mechanic Unions have faced legal action from the company, and we do not want to put individual Flight Attendants or our Union at risk.

While this is unfair to Workers, we must abide by the law. We have a plan to reach an agreement that does not put individual Flight Attendants at risk. Our power is in our solidarity, and right now, American is seeing 27,000+ Flight Attendants and the entire Labor Movement standing with us.
