Dear Members,
 

Your local officers have urged you to vote in favor of our 2013 Flight Attendant Tentative Agreement and I want to add my enthusiastic endorsement as well.

 

We have traveled the past months down a rocky path to get to this place and have arrived in some uncharted waters as a union.

 

After our membership turned down two tentative agreements in the past 12 months, the National Mediation Board gave us a final opportunity in January: reach an agreement that US Airways Flight Attendants would have the chance to vote on or we would go into an indefinite recess. The NMB was direct and the message was brutal.

 

Deborah Volpe and I determined we had an obligation to our colleagues to deliver the best possible agreement if we were to secure our right to vote for our futures. But we were limited in items that we could discuss with the company. We focused on a few areas and, after many hours of battle back and forth, we obtained improvements that we were unable to get in TA2, including:

  • A seat at the table for four-party negotiations in the event of a merger

  • A $40,000 voluntary early out provision upon merger close

  • A $1,700 ratification signing bonus, and

  • We affirmed our rights under the law: there can be no changes to our contract without our approval (all US Airways Flight Attendants) as long as we are represented by AFA.

After working under a bankruptcy agreement since 2005, this is our final opportunity to improve our current working conditions and pay rates in a single agreement for all of US. And just as importantly, this agreement puts in place rules for future negotiations and sets the bar higher for future improvements while maintaining the strongest scope and LPPs (labor protection provisions) in the industry.

 

Voting will open Feb. 7 and close Feb. 28. Don't make a decision based on misinformation or galley gossip. Get the facts and consider the impact of this agreement on the whole.

 

We will hold a live webcast on Feb. 14. Please forward your questions to ourafa.org or plan to attend one of our Roadshows Feb. 4-7.

 

During the weeks of Feb. 18 and Feb. 25 I will be visiting our bases and I will make myself available in the crew rooms.

 

As your colleague and MEC President, I encourage you to put us in the strongest position possible for our future by ratifying this agreement. Cast your vote FOR the 2013 Flight Attendant Tentative Agreement. 

 

In Solidarity,

 

Roger Holmin
MEC President
