What Do They Do?
The Mobilization Committee works to provide support to the Negotiating Committee through coordinated solidarity activity and two-way communication between the membership and the committee.
Volunteers will work closely with the Local Mobilization Committee Chairperson to call other members to action through participation in organized solidarity activities and a program of information sharing with Flight Attendants.
What is Mobilization?
Mobilization is more than just a committee—it’s a program of action and information that allows every Flight Attendant to play a positive role in building a strong voice in support of our Negotiating Committee. Mobilization establishes a structure to provide information about key issues and achieve a high level of participation in solidarity activities. The structure allows information to be shared quickly and effectively, primarily through one-on-one interactions driven by Mobilization Volunteers in each base.

Mobilization Volunteers work to involve Flight Attendants in the negotiating process by actively sharing news and updates, educating them about official resources, and asking them to show support through collective actions.
