The separate, pre-merger seniority lists for AS and VX have been merged and we now have a single Integrated Seniority List.
The Seniority Merger Integration Committee (SMIC) completed this monumental task over the course of the previous 10 months. The SMIC consists of representatives from each of our pre-merger airlines: AS members Sandra Morrow and Marie Maxwell; and, the VX members Lynne Voigtsberger and Rolando Teran.
The SMIC merged the lists in compliance with the AFA-CWA Constitution and Bylaws. Everyone on each seniority list remains in the same relative order. Everyone on the VX list retains the same seniority date, and those on the AS list have an adjusted seniority date that provides credit for the initial training period.
This merged list establishes the seniority dates and relative order for all 5,000-plus Alaska Flight Attendants. For easy distinction of the merged list, VX members are shaded in a light red. You can either scroll through the list or search on your name to find your seniority number and seniority date.
You can view the merged seniority list in the email version of this article. Please check your personal email for a message from the AFA Alaska Seniority Merger Integration Committee containing the link to the list.
This list is being provided to management. Going forward, this copy of the list will be “static,” but the seniority list that is published monthly on the F/A website will be updated and “live” in approximately 60 days. It will change as new members are added or current members leave, but the seniority dates and relative order will not change.
The SMIC will be sending out an additional communication later this week with answers to the most frequently asked question. It will include background on the methods used to determine initial training adjustments, the methodology used when FAs from both airlines had the same seniority date, and many other general questions.
If you have any questions or would like to contact the SMIC, please do so by email at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
