A Message from Local Council 35 President Melissa Osborne
Thank you everyone for voting in this historic first election at Virgin America! I am so grateful that I have been chosen to continue the work of bringing an improved life to VX Flight Attendants. It has been an honor to represent all of you and I thank you for giving me the chance to continue what I’ve started!
Every one of you have my pledge that I will represent you individually and collectively to the best of my abilities, regardless of your seniority, your voting history, or your political views. One of my many goals as president is to bring unity and solidarity to our workgroup. Now is not the time to dwell on events of the past that divided us, but it’s a time to put the past where it belongs and move towards a better and brighter future.
Thank you to everyone who stepped up to the plate and offered themselves in service to our union. It takes courage and dedication to make that kind of commitment, and I appreciate those with a true servant’s heart who chose to take a chance and run in this election.
I would also like to thank the outgoing Council 35 Secretary, James Ikehara. He was a joy to work with and I appreciate all the support he gave to me as I took on this role.
Thank you, members, for taking the time to vote and for electing me as your Council 35 President!
Local Council 35 President
