The Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) has prepared the comprehensive full text tentative agreements (TAs) that make up the overall Merger Agreement.
The Merger Agreement is the global ‘umbrella’ document and incorporates all agreements related to the merger by reference. Keep in mind that in order to transition pre-merger Virgin America (pmVX) Flight Attendants onto the pre-merger Alaska Airlines (pmAS) pay, work rules and other contract provisions, some letters of agreement (LOAs) apply only to the pmVX FAs, some apply to only pmAS FAs, and some apply to both. However, all eligible pmAS and pm VX FAs will be voting on the collection of TAs, so you should familiarize yourself with every LOA.
Now that the comprehensive full text documents have been posted, the JNC blog will go live shortly.

The roadshow schedule may be found in the February 3, 2018 ”Save the Date: Tentative Merger Agreement Roadshows” membership release. AFA anticipates voting will open shortly after the completion of roadshows in mid-March and will end in early April. Any pre-merger Alaska Airlines (pmAS) or pre-merger Virgin America (pmVX) FAs are welcome to attend any and all sessions. Please be aware that only AFA members in good standing may vote on the TA, so it is extremely important that pmAS FAs are current on their dues and pmVX FAs have completed an AFA membership application prior to the vote.
