Our Red-Hot Summer is Heating Up!
Week of Solidarity – Red AFA Pins!
This week, there are activities happening at all bases encouraging solidarity. Some bases, as you may have heard, are having “Pop-Up Pickets”. Unlike our System-Wide planned picket on August 15th, these are smaller events and planned to be more of a “surprise”. In ANC, we did not have ample time to obtain the necessary permits to allow an event such as this to happen. However, we will be participating in this Week of Solidarity in a different way.
What will that look like?
Your Local Officers and members of the Mobilization Committee will be in the airport throughout the day on July 21st to:
- Distribute Red Pins!
- Provide guidance on how FAs can best support negotiations in the months ahead
- Encourage Engagement and Solidarity
- Provide live sign-up assistance for the August 15 picket
- Answer questions from FAs about what to expect at the picket
August 15th – Show Your Solidarity!
Remember to mark your calendars for August 15th! We will be picketing from 2pm-3pm (AKST) on the departure level of the airport. We will be gathering everyone and staging at 1:30pm. All FAs should be in a compliant uniform with RED PINS! Any family joining should show support by wearing RED shirts! RAIN or SHINE, we will all need to SHOW UP to send a loud message to management! Obtaining an Industry Leading Contract MUST be worth an hour of your time! Thank you to ALL who bid this day off, looking forward to walking that picket with each and every one of YOU!
