7.03.24 – APFA ORD Base Brief – August 2024 Staffing and Allocations

August 2024 ORD Staffing and Allocations

Wednesday, July 3, 2024

Happy July, Everyone!

The August staffing and allocations call was held today. However, we will begin with a few words on negotiations.

These last few weeks, we have been on edge, with negotiations ping-ponging us back and forth about what is happening. While the Negotiating committee is limited in the message they can deliver about the specifics of negotiations, one thing is clear: They are standing firm and fighting for the contract we deserve.

If you feel discouraged or as if this process is too long, remember that, as of this morning, we are on Negotiations Update #65 and began this process over five years ago. We are nearing the end, which is the most challenging part of any race. WE are a strong team. We will persevere and win this race! We will win the contract we deserve! WE are in this together. Stay informed, stay united, and, most importantly, stay strong!

The contractual month is August 1st- August 30th.

We are currently in the critical period – July 1st through July 7th. To receive your banked point, you must fly a trip(s) during those days (serving RAPs also count), but you cannot have any absences during this period. Review American’s Attendance and Performance Policy for more information, or contact [email protected].
