Never Forget – the events of 9/11/2001
Every year, AFA-CWA provides an Honor Guard to attend the ceremonies honoring the sacrifices of the Flight Attendants who lost their lives on 9/11. This year, former MEC Legislative Affairs Chair Bev Bullock was nominated and selected as an Honor Guard member, in recognition of her efforts to advance our legislative agenda to Never Forget. Council #19 is proud to join AFA-CWA in recognizing her efforts and all she has done to honor our heroes. We congratulate her on her much deserved selection as an Honor Guard member.
Retirement Committee Vacancy
Seattle currently has a vacancy on the Retirement Committee. If this is an area of interest or experience, please submit a Resume and Letter of Interest to Terry Taylor, firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than end of business day 10/1/17. This is not a terribly “time consuming” committee, with two meetings per year, one in late November or early December, and one in May. Feel free to email Terry with any questions.
Open enrollment for 2018 benefits changes and additions is scheduled to take place October 23rd-November 13th. Look for information regarding base visits for assistance with the process as we get closer to the date.
Please Welcome New Members to the Inflight Service Committee!
We would like to welcome LeAnne Canton, Jerry Sinclair, Michelle Cooper, Rita Tillou, Libby Green, Antoine Smith-Rouse and Grace Dunning to the Inflight Service Committee! Thanks for volunteering!
Cornerstone Training and Crew Access
We are aware that there were significant difficulties for many flight attendants with the Cornerstone App and with completing the recent door training module. We have heard how frustrating many found this process. The ongoing issues with Crew Access are equally concerning. We are pleased that Jake Jones is returning to the MEC Scheduling Committee Chair position to assist the Scheduling Committee with gathering information and facilitating solutions.
Seattle Council Representatives Megan Brown and Melinda Jorge have completed the second session of Officer Training. They were also able to attend the annual FADAP meeting in Baltimore at the end of August. Please feel free to contact them as well as your other Local Officers with any questions or concerns.
Please use the AFA Alaska Online Support Center website (http://support.afaalaska.org) to file complaints, or to contact us for resolution of scheduling concerns. With over 2,200 Flight Attendants in the Seattle base, it’s more important than ever that we report, track and monitor all issues. If it is a scheduling related problem, please attach screenshots, and explain your situation thoroughly.This will ensure that we have sufficient information to research your concern. Your scheduling or reserve issues will automatically be forwarded to the appropriate committee for resolution.
