Dear Flight Attendants,
Your Mobilization Committee is hard at work conducting Mobilization Training sessions in our five base cities this week in preparation for support of the Negotiating Committee when mediation begins again. Sessions were conducted yesterday in Anchorage and additional sessions are scheduled today in Seattle and later in the week in Portland, Los Angeles, and San Diego. It’s not too late to sign up for training if you haven’t already done so. Visit alaskamec.org/mobilization/training to register now.
In conjunction with Mobilization Training, a solidarity activity is planned on May 20th in all bases. Even if you are unable to attend a Mobilization Training session, we invite and encourage as much participation as possible in the May 20th event. Participation time slots for each base are as follows:
- Anchorage: 13:30-16:30
- Seattle: 05:00-07:00, 07:00-09:00, and 12:00-14:00
- Portland: 06:00-09:00
- Los Angeles (LAX): 09:00-11:00 and 14:00-16:00
- San Diego: 08:00-11:00
Once you’ve signed up, your Local Mobilization Chairperson will be in contact with you to provide you with a briefing on the event including where to meet up. If you attended or are planning on attending a Mobilization Training session this week, it is not necessary for you to complete the signup form—you will be signed up automatically at your training session.
If you have any questions about the Mobilization Committee or the May 20th solidarity event, please contact your Local Mobilization Chairperson. Contact information can be found at alaskamec.org/mobilization.
Let’s send a resounding message on May 20th and demonstrate that we are FIVE BASES, STANDING STRONG!
Your MEC – Jeffrey Peterson, Brian Palmer, Yvette Gesch, Becky Strachan, Laura Masserant, Cathy Gywnn, Sandra Morrow and MEC Mobilization Chairperson Adam Clarey
