Welcome to the Negotiating Committee Blog!
Email us at email@example.com for topic suggestions, questions or general feedback.
Information on the blog is authored by your Negotiating Committee Members and is based on questions, feedback, and thoughts gathered from a variety of sources.
The blog is designed so that Flight Attendants have a real-time resource to ask questions and be provided answers in regards to the current negotiations process and the provisions of a tentative agreement (TA). In order to keep our comments section open we are limiting comments to questions only. Any question that is relevant will be answered clearly and accurately. Any comment that is speculative or based on personal opinion will either not be published or will be edited to include only the pertinent question(s). Please understand that this is necessary to provide a format that is accurate and provides Flight Attendants all of the necessary facts in the simplest manner possible.
Most of the time, comments posted on blog content will be responded to (publicly or privately) within 24 hours. Due to the high demands of the committee while in session, it may take up to 72 hours to respond in certain circumstances.
In order to keep the conversation relevant and current, the ability to comment on a particular post will close after 7 days. Once comments close, feel free to contact the Negotiating Committee directly.
