Important Election Clarification: The link below contains the correct eligibility information.
The site has been updated with a clarification. Active was referring to being active with AFA, not their company.
The C&B considers those on an unpaid leave of absence active with AFA during the 90-day period: Article II C.1.b(1)& (2).
Active members are entitled to all the rights and privileges of the Union including the right to vote. Article II C.1.a.
The C&B allows a member to remain active after the 90-days dues obligation. Remaining active requires the Flight Attendant to notify AFA of their desire to remain active beyond the 90-days and continue to pay dues.
This is the only way a Flight Attendant beyond the 90-day dues obligation can vote and participate in AFA activities.
As always, if you have an issue, please file at ticket at support.afaalaska.org and someone will contact you.
