On Tuesday, January 22, 2019, it will be exactly one month since the shutdown started on December 22, 2018. We invite you to meet up with your AFA sisters and brothers as we show our solidarity and support for TSA officers, who are represented by the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), and other federal employees.
WHAT: ‘Stop the Shutdown’ rally
WHEN: Tuesday, January 22 from 1 to 3 p.m. PT
WHERE: Sea-Tac Airport Flag Pavilion (at the Sea-Tac International Airport entrance on International Blvd)
WHO: Off-duty Flight Attendants, their family and friends
DRESS: Flight Attendant uniform strongly preferred. (Management is aware and supportive of our intent to rally in uniform.) However, an AFA red t-shirt (if you have one from previous rallies—we will not be supplying them this time) or a plain red t-shirt is also fine.
AIR TRAVEL: Management has graciously authorized the use of employee space available pleasure travel for out-of-town Flight Attendants to fly to and from the event on off-duty time. Please exercise good judgment and ensure participating in this rally does not create a conflict with any scheduling obligations you have with the Company.
The Master Executive Council (MEC) understands this is extremely short notice. We also just learned of the rally earlier today. Stay tuned for additional information early next week. We hope to see you there if you are available!
Your MEC – Jeffrey Peterson, Brian Palmer, Linda Christou, Lisa Pinkston, Terry Taylor, Mario de’Medici, Melissa Osborne, Tim Green and Brice McGee; and MEC Government Affairs Chairperson Krystle Berry
