Take ACTION, standing shoulder to shoulder to support our Negotiating Committee and OUR Contract.
In the past, the Union’s Negotiating Committee met with Management, they reached a Tentative Agreement (TA), and the membership voted whether to accept or reject the TA.
Often communication was vague or non-existent until it was time to either take a strike vote or put the TA out for a vote.
Times have changed, and so has APFA’s approach to achieving a Contract that addresses our ongoing sacrifice and commitment to our profession and the airline.
No longer will your Union ask you to wait on the sidelines with minimal information.
No longer will your Union ask you to wait until the 11th hour before we are asked to show our solidarity.
No longer will your Union ask that your voices be silent in the bargaining room.
This is a call to ACTION for all American Airlines Flight Attendants.
The Contract ACTION Team is American Airlines Flight Attendants. The ACTION Team will engage in various activities at the direction of the Negotiating Committee, ranging from the digital, base, regional, and systemwide ACTIONS. We will also be linking arms with other labor Unions at our airline as well as other carriers.
We will have “boots on the ground” as well as an extensive digital presence.
The Negotiating Committee will call on all of us to help drive the message on complex issues for Management to digest. All of us will help Management understand why it is important for US to have the Contract we all deserve. We deserve a Contract that considers the sacrifices we have made with our merger and while working the front lines during this dangerous worldwide pandemic. We watched our co-workers get sick and die while wondering if we were carrying the virus home to our loved ones. Furloughs, monthly schedules packed with extensive flying, reschedules, and reduced rest. We were on the front lines lobbying for the Payroll Support Program (PSP) that helped keep us connected to our paychecks and benefits. We lobbied for the PSP to help keep American Airlines flying.
We do not want to hear about cost containment, increased productivity by weakening work rules or less benefits while management is offering recruitment bonuses to Pilots who are not even on American Airlines’ payroll.
Let us come together for a common goal to get the Contract WE all deserve.
Let's send a clear message to management that we will take ACTION, standing shoulder to shoulder to support our Negotiating Committee and OUR Contract.
We Need You. Join as an Activist for the Contract ACTION Team.
