Air Safety, Health, & Security Committee Meeting Recap – 4th Quarter 2023
Originally posted October 10, 2023
Our AFA Air Safety, Health, & Security Committee (ASHSC) Chairpersons met on Thursday, October 5, to discuss their ongoing program of work to represent Flight Attendants’ interests related to safety, health, and security in our workplace. The Committee also met with management to receive updates and discuss issues and problems that Flight Attendants face onboard the aircraft. Reporting safety concerns is more important than ever, given the challenges we currently face as a workgroup. Flight Attendant Irregularity Reports (FAIR), Aviation Safety Action Reports (ASAP), and fatigue reports can all be filed using ReportIt! Please get in touch with a member of your Local ASHSC if you need assistance.

Tell Them What You Think: Take Management’s Pulse Survey
We are so pleased to know that management wants to hear from all of us. Let’s make the October Pulse survey a success by telling management how we really feel!
Here are some talking points you may want to share in the comments section of your anonymous survey:
- How all of the unpaid duty time is illegal and affecting your livelihood
- If you are disappointed that management continues to prioritize “economic feasibility” over your well-being
- How lack of scheduling integrity through reassignments is eroding morale
- How 90%+ reserve utilization is unsustainable and inhumane
Encourage your crew members to take the survey!
Check your company Outlook email or Team AAG (AAG sign-on required) for the link.
The survey closes at 23:59 Pacific Time on Sunday, October 22.
