Dear Flight Attendants,
Approximately 1 year ago, your MEC posted an informational guideline for those flight attendants experiencing health related issues due to the TwinHill uniform titled, “Your Uniform, Your Health”. Since then many of the policies and procedures have changed and so we are providing you with an updated version. (Please see below).
Approximately 6 weeks ago we posted the most current statistics obtained from responses to the multiple surveys and questionnaires that we sent out to those of you with reported adverse reactions to the TwinHill uniform. At that time the total number of reported cases was 597. Just 6 weeks later the number has risen to 652. That’s 55 new cases in 6 weeks! (Please see below for updated statistics).
AFA leadership and members of the Uniform and Safety, Health and Security Committees are working with management to procure a new uniform as quickly as possible. However, the projected rollout date is not until Fall 2014.
If you believe you are experiencing an adverse reaction to the TwinHill uniform, please follow the guidelines provided in “Your Uniform, Your Health”.
