AFA Membership Dues
Many Council 15 members are behind on their monthly AFA dues. After 90-days, a member can fall into Bad Standing. Once in Bad Standing, a member’s vote is not counted nor are they permitted to attend local council meetings until they are become current or make alternate payment arrangements with AFA Membership Services. Unpaid dues could result in termination per Section 26 C, D, & E of our Collective Bargaining Agreement.
Our Local Membership Committee can provide you with balance information- but we do not have access payment or billing history. If you have questions about your account, please reach out to AFA Membership Services.

Benefits and Leaves
The Committee is receiving an unprecedented number of inquiries regarding Medical Leaves. While we are here to assist, we need everyone to be informed and aware of leave guidelines. Please be aware that there is a Leave Handbook for each type of leave. The Leave Handbooks provide step by step instruction to help you begin the process and navigate your leave. We suggest reading through the appropriate handbook prior to starting your leave in order to have familiarity with the process. Leave Handbooks can be found on Alaskasworld> Inflight Page> Administration> Leaves
