- Our Negotiating Committee has their first negotiations session next week with management.
- It’s time to show our solidarity and show management we are ready for an industry leading contract.
- Wear your AFA pin with pride, follow AFA social media, and ensure you are signed up for AFA emails.
Next week, our Negotiating Committee will share our Opening Proposal with management. It’s important to show management all 6500+ Flight Attendants stand in solidarity behind our Negotiating Committee!
In addition to supporting our Negotiating Committee at the table with management, make sure you have access to the latest updates in contract news. Information will be distributed after each session to keep Flight Attendants informed on what’s happening and how the process is going. We will also continue to plan Mobilization Moments throughout the process ensuring management hears our voice and knows we are ready for the contract we deserve!
To showcase our support for the negotiations process, and our passion for contract improvements, we planned our first Mobilization Moment to coincide with the start of the first negotiation session on Tuesday, September 13th.
1. Wear your AFA pin
On Tuesday, September 13th, make sure to wear your AFA pin while flying. Our Mobilization Committee will be present in ANC, SEA, PDX, SFO, LAX, and SAN. The committee and our Mobilization Volunteers will hand out AFA pins and provide easy ways to access AFA updates.
Not flying? Everyone should post pictures wearing your AFA pin on social media – use the hashtags #WeCanDoBetter and #AFAAlaska.
