Last Friday (April 28), an AFA email was sent out soliciting interest in two merger-related positons: Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) Member and Merger Representative. These are two very important roles in the integration process. You can review the April 28 communication, which contains detailed information about the positions, by clicking here.
Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) Member
The JNC Member will be responsible for working with the Alaska JNC Members to negotiate a merged agreement with management. Once a merged agreement is ratified and in place, the JNC Member will continue to serve as part of the contract interpretation committee. We will be appointing one Virgin America AFA Member to this position.
The Merger Representatives will be responsible for verifying key employment dates with all Virgin America Flight Attendants and reconciling the Virgin America seniority list. Once that process is complete, the Merger Representatives will work with the Alaska Merger Representatives to compile the integrated seniority list. There are two Virgin America Merger Representative positions that will be appointed.
