Numerous Merger Representative applications
The AFA Alaska Master Executive Council (MEC) has received numerous applications for the two Merger Representative positions. We thank all the applicants in advance for their willingness to serve. The MEC will be conducting a conference call later this evening to review the applications and to select those who we will schedule for a phone interview during our MEC meeting next week.
AFA and the Transport Workers Union of America (TWU), the union representing the Virgin America Inflight Team Members (ITMs), have been in touch to discuss a smooth transition for the Virgin America (VX) ITMs should the merger achieve proper approvals from the VX shareholders and the appropriate regulatory agencies. Our unions have a history of working together to address issues for Flight Attendants in a merger, and this is good news for all Alaska F/As and Virgin America ITMs. AFA and TWU will meet to discuss issues in greater detail in the coming weeks.
