Mobilization Expands: Direct Passenger Outreach Begins Today
Originally posted November 15, 2023
Mobilization Volunteers will begin distributing leaflets today to Alaska Airlines passengers across all six bases, inviting them to keep up with our contract fight. Passengers can stay informed by scanning a QR code on the leaflets and signing up for email updates. If passengers ask questions on the aircraft about picketing, negotiations, or leafleting, they should be redirected to Alaska Listens. Do not discuss negotiations with passengers while on duty.

Direct Passenger Outreach Off to a Successful Start
We’re making it easy for passengers to support our contract fight and stay informed about upcoming actions that may impact their travel plans. Today, our Mobilization Volunteers launched a campaign to distribute informative leaflets among our passengers across all six bases. Several Local Councils will continue to conduct leafleting activities over the next few days. Leaflets included a QR code that directs passengers to the community support page on the contract website, where they can find a link for an email signup form for the public to receive email updates.
American Airlines Flight Attendant Informational Picketing
American Airlines Flight Attendants, represented by the Association of Professional Flight Attendants (APFA), held informational picketing events nationwide yesterday to send American management a message: they are ready to strike! They’ve set today as the final deadline for American management to come to the table with a satisfactory economic proposal. If American management doesn’t, the APFA Board of Directors will vote on approving a request to the National Mediation Board (NMB) for release from mediation and into a thirty-day cooling-off period.
AFA Flight Attendants from Alaska and other airlines joined the picket line in support. Management across the industry is watching, and our solidarity is powerful! When we fight together, we win together!
