Dear Flight Attendants:
Polls closed today at 12 PM PST for voting on the Tentative Agreement (TA) reached by the Negotiating Committee on December 12, 2013. The results of the vote are as follows:
|Voting FOR the agreement||824||30%|
|Voting AGAINST the agreement||1900||70%|
|Participation Rate of Eligible Voters||89.3%|
As indicated above, the TA has failed.
More than ever, this is a time for all of us to come together and stand united. You have spoken through your votes and the Negotiating Committee is prepared to go back to the table and send management a message that we demand more improvements!
Prior to the Negotiating Committee going back to the table, a new survey will be sent out to you to help the Committee to determine what areas of importance need more attention and focus. You can expect to see an invitation to participate in the survey in your email within the next several weeks. If you are receiving this email, we already have your email address on file for your survey invitation. Please ensure that firstname.lastname@example.org is in your address book to prevent any potential spam filtering or bounce back from our email servers.
Your MEC – Jeffrey Peterson, Brian Palmer, Yvette Gesch, Becky Strachan, Laura Masserant, Cathy Gwynn, and Sandra Morrow
Your Negotiating Committee – MEC President Jeffrey Peterson, Brian Tracy, Karina Cameron-Fetters, Jake Jones and AFA Senior Staff Negotiator Paula Mastrangelo
