Council #19 February Base Update
We have had a very busy start to 2018. We have had a flurry of activity due to the Oral and Written Warning Grievances filed for those who were unable to complete the CBT Compliance Training. There were multiple IT issues for those who had difficulty completing the training by the deadline. The problems seem to be continuing with the Cornerstone Recurrent Training program. If you are or have had difficulties using the Cornerstone application for the Computer Based Training or the Recurrent Training version, and if you have records or screenshots of your attempts to solve the problems through supervisors, Spot On or IT, please forward them to email@example.com. We are hopeful that the Desktop version will prove more reliable.
On February 18th the Seattle Benefits Committee held a Maternity Roundtable for those Flight Attendants who are pregnant, or planning to become pregnant. The meeting was well attended. Seattle Benefits Chair, Kathy O’Malley, Benefits Maternity Chair Danni Peterson, Seattle Benefits Committee Member LeAnne Canton, MEC Grievance Chair Stephanie Adams and MEC Benefits Chair/Council 19 President Terry Taylor were present to discuss recent changes to Maternity Leaves and to answer questions. If you have maternity related questions, feel free to contact Danni Peterson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Having a problem? Not sure who to contact?
There is a complete list of Seattle Committee members available at afaalaska.org/sea/committees. You will also fined laminated cards in the Seattle Inflight Office that lists all of the Committee Chairpersons and Officer phone numbers. We will have some available at the TA Roadshows and PBS sits, as well.
You can also go to support.afaalaska.org and open a ticket. This is very helpful if you have a reserve, pay or scheduling issue. You can attach supporting documents so that we can resolve your issues as quickly as possible.

Council #19 Base Meeting
We will be holding our Council #19 Base Meeting on March 27th from 1pm-4pm. The first two hours of this meeting will be a joint meeting along with Horizon Council #16. The majority of the agenda items will be advanced Board of Director’s meeting agenda items, as this is required in the AFA Constitution and Bylaws, however, we will devote the last hour of the meeting to taking questions regarding the TA. There will be a Joint Negotiating Committee Member present at the meeting.
The meeting will be at SeaTac Towers (same building as 13 Coins), Lower Plaza Level in the Earhart Room.
Class 18-1 graduated last week and will be starting on Reserve March 2nd. You will see some of them flying prior to them, so please wish them a warm welcome to our Alaska Family.
