Your Seniority Merger Integration Committee (SMIC) members are attending training this week at AFA-CWA headquarters in Washington, DC. Your SMIC members are Merger Representatives Sandra Morrow (AS), Rolando Teran (VX), Lynne Voigtsberger (VX) and Marie Maxwell (AS). Master Executive Council (MEC) President Jeffrey Peterson and MEC Secretary-Treasurer Linda Christou are accompanying them in a supportive role.
The merger representatives act on behalf of the Flight Attendants of their respective airline for the purpose of compiling necessary employment data and an Integrated Seniority List (ISL). Information about the duties and responsibilities of Merger Representatives is contained within Section X.C of the AFA International Constitution & Bylaws Policy Manual.
Seniority integration will be by competitive seniority date, which is the date from which each Flight Attendant accrues competitive (bidding) seniority as a Flight Attendant on her/his current seniority list. The merger representatives are tasked with sending letters to the Flight Attendants on each carrier’s respective seniority list so that seniority dates can be verified. The process for researching the seniority lists will begin after the merger representatives complete this week’s Seniority Merger Integration Committee training. The Integrated Seniority List will not be finalized and published until we have achieved a merged collective bargaining agreement.
You will be hearing more from the Seniority Merger Integration Committee as the process continues.
