Our System-wide Informational Picket is just around the corner and your leadership and mobilization teams are working hard planning and organizing a successful event! Here are some important details you should know:
We already have hundreds of RSVPs and continue to add more every day. Please continue to invite your family, friends and labor allies to stand along side us. If you haven’t already, please RSVP here and help us to prepare for the size of crowd to expect.
We are delighted to announce that AFA International President, Sara Nelson, will be standing in solidarity with us in Seattle. She, along with our local leaders will add to the power of our voices as we show management and the public that our Flight Attendants are united and ready to fight for the contract we have earned.

There is limited parking at Angle Lake Park. There are several lots in the area that you can utilize. We highly encourage carpooling and using public transportation. You can park at the SeaTac light rail station and take the train one stop to Angle Lake Station which is about a .5 mile walk to the park.
We would like to concentrate our picketing around the HUB and Alaska Corporate. Our Negotiations Committee and management will be returning to the negotiating table at our AFA Office location which is about 1 mile north of Angle Lake Park and right across the street from the Flag Pavilion, which is where we had our Pop-Up picket last month. For those willing and able, we would love to have a picket march up to the Flag Pavilion and Union Office and line all along International Boulevard in between.
