This message is for pre-merger Alaska Airlines Flight Attendants
Due to several recent flight diversions and how crew member transportation was handled in those situations, AFA has worked with management to clarify what options Flight Attendants have for transportation in these situations. A memorandum of understanding (MOU) has been signed with the Company putting this clarification in writing.
If your flight is diverted and passengers and crew members are transported by ground, you have the contractual right to be transported separately from the passengers per §22.B of the Flight Attendant collective bargaining agreement. The new MOU gives you the additional option to use the transportation provided for passengers in such a situation if you choose to do so.
If you have any questions about the MOU, please contact your Local Council Officers.
Your MEC – Jeffrey Peterson, Brian Palmer, Linda Christou, Lisa Pinkston, Terry Taylor, Mario de’Medici, Melissa Osborne, Tim Green, Brice McGee; and MEC Scheduling Committee Chairperson Jake Jones
