August 27th RED HOT Summer Picket Event
Dear Seattle Flight Attendants,
I want to thank everyone who came out to the AFA RED HOT Summer Picnic yesterday! We had a great turnout and enjoyed the afternoon talking, eating, and showing our solidarity! VP of Inflight- Andy Schneider, VP of Labor Relations- Shane Tackett, Managing Director of Inflight- Ron Calvin, and Managing Director of Labor Relations- Elizabeth Ryan stopped by the picnic to visit with the attendees.
MEC President, Jeff Peterson, addressed the group and encouraged everyone to stay informed and show our solidarity. Jeff also reminded everyone about the upcoming picket on August 27th and how important it is for anyone who has that day off to attend one of the system wide events. However, please remember that you are not allowed to use your non-revenue pass benefits to travel for the event.
As an added bonus we were able to help MEC President Jeff Peterson fulfill his ALS Ice Bucket Challenge! In fact, your AFA officers have been very involved this past week with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge:
Monday: Andy Schneider challenged LEC VP Jake Jones and me.
Tuesday: LEC Presidents Cathy Gwynn (PDX) and Sandra Morrow (LAX) joined me in completing my challenge after our MEC meeting where the three of us challenged CEO Brad Tilden and MEC President Jeff Peterson
Wednesday: Both Brad and Jeff completed their challenges on Wednesday.
Jeff Peterson challenged Sara Nelson, AFA International President; Shane Tackett, VP of Labor; Elizabeth Ryan, Managing Director of Labor Relations; and Mike Link, Manager of Inflight Labor and Work.
Thursday: Due to his busy flight schedule, LEC VP Jake Jones donated directly to the ALS fund. Way to go Jake!
