Dear Flight Attendants,
Next week your Negotiation Committee and Master Executive Council (MEC) will be traveling to all the bases to meet with you and discuss the Tentative Agreement (TA). These “roadshows” give you the opportunity to HAVE The TA EXPLAINED ask questions and seek clarification on the language.
The full text of the TA will be posted electronically as soon as possible and we anticipate having a printed TA Summary and full TA available in the crew rooms the first week of the roadshows. Unfortunately, the holidays have hampered our timeline, as the rest of the world does not operate 24/7 like we do!
An electronic summary of the TA is posted on alaskamec.org and we encourage you to review (AND /OR PRINT OUT) the summary prior to attending any Roadshow.
You are welcome to attend any Roadshow in any base. There are two sessions offered on each day: generally one morning session from 9am to 12pm and one afternoon session from 1pm to 5pm.
A full TA will be supplied electronically prior to the Road Shows and will be available in print at the Road Shows.
It is very important to educate yourself and ask questions if you are unsure. Your Local Executive Council (LEC) officers are available via email and phone to help answer any questions that you may have. You may also send questions directly to the Negotiating Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We do apologize for the last minute scheduling of the first round of roadshows. If you cannot attend one of the January roadshows please know that we will be releasing the February dates before February bidding has closed and we’re targeting to get that information out before bidding even opens. The February roadshows will occur in the first two weeks of the month. A link to a calendar of the January roadshows is at the bottom of this communication.
IMPORTANT: BALLOTS WILL BE MAILED TO YOUR HOME ( ELECTRONIC VOTING) AND THE POLLS OPEN ON JANUARY 17 and close on February 14.
Your Negotiating Committee – MEC President Jeffrey Peterson, Brian Tracy, Karina Cameron-Fetters, Jake Jones and AFA Senior Staff Negotiator Paula Mastrangelo
