Q: Will the L-VX FAs pay the same $50 union dues as L-AS FAs if the TA passes without the same work rules essentially causing a discrepancy in pay still?
A: Like in any merger, there will be a period of time in which there is a difference in work rules between the two pre-merger FA groups. However, L-VX FAs will have the Alaska pay rates, per diem, full grievance protections, grievable work rules, access to the full AFA committee structure and support, etc. That being said, AFA understand the desire to achieve the Alaska work, and the Association will do our part to help achieve Full Implementation as soon as possible. Dues will start being collected in July based on an April ratification.
