Our Master Executive Council (MEC) conducted interviews this week for the MEC Mobilization Committee Chairperson position who will be responsible for coordinating mobilization activities across all six bases during our upcoming contract negotiations. Our MEC would like to thank the candidates who demonstrated willingness to represent our Flight Attendants.
After thorough deliberation, the voting members of your MEC, consisting of the six directly-elected LEC Presidents, have appointed Justin Wetherell to the position.
Justin Wetherell started as a Flight Attendant in 2014 at Horizon Air and joined Alaska Airlines in 2015. Justin previously attended college at Willamette University in Salem, OR, after growing up in Anchorage, AK. While at Alaska Airlines, Justin has held several AFA positions – MEC Inflight Training Committee Member, Local Scheduling Committee Chairperson, Local Communications Committee Chairperson, Human Rights Committee Member, Uniform Committee Member, and Reserve Committee Member.
Justin has a passion for union work and advocating for our members – they’ve been involved in several projects over the past few years, including crew systems training and contract roadshows. Justin also supports our members by conducting recurrent and initial training as an Inflight Instructor. Justin hopes their dedication, passion, and knowledge will be an asset to our members during upcoming negotiations.
