Dear Flight Attendants,
In the upcoming days some of you will be contacted by one of your local AFA officers, or a VOICE or other AFA committee member. We are conducting a brief phone survey with very specific questions to better facilitate representing you at the table during our upcoming mediation session next week. Due to the time constraints, we will be sampling Flight Attendants from all seniority levels at every base.
The results of the survey will facilitate a more focused and accurate approach as your negotiators work with offers on the table that continue to move into areas not addressed in the initial 2011 negotiations survey.
Due to the high volume of calls and limited time frame, we request that any questions to the survey takers be kept to a minimum. If you are called, please answer the questions as concisely as possible. This will allow your leadership and volunteers to contact as many Flight Attendants as possible for a fair and comprehensive poll of our Membership.
We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Your MEC – Jeffrey Peterson, Terry Taylor, Yvette Gesch, Melanie Buker, Laura Masserant, Cathy Gwynn and Sandra Morrow; and
Your Negotiating Committee – MEC President Jeffrey Peterson, Brian Tracy, Karina Cameron-Fetters, Jake Jones and AFA Staff Negotiator Paula Mastrangelo
