Q: If the JCBA does not pass, then will both L-AS and L-VX FAs start getting cross trained this summer and will Full Implementation occur in March 2019 as shown on the timeline that MEC President Peterson explained in the Implementation segment of the Merger TA roadshow webinar?
A: If the Merger TA does not ratify, Flight Attendant cross training will continue as scheduled. Additionally, training for both aircraft types will be incorporated into 2019 Recurrent Training, so L-AS and L-VX Flight Attendants will remain current on both aircraft types. However, Full Implementation will not happen if the Merger TA does not ratify. Management cannot integrate both groups without an Integrated Seniority List, and AFA will not release the ISL to management without a ratified JCBA.
