AFA & ALPA Professional Standards Announce, "Union First" Campaign

Date: September 29, 2017
Type: AFA Article

As an AFA member, you have access to the AFA Employee Assistance/Professional Standards (EAP/PS) committee which serves as an alternative pathway to addressing co-worker conflicts without management involvement. In addition, AFA EAP/PS has a great working relationship with ALPA Professional Standards Committee to help address conflicts that arise between Flight Attendants and Pilots. If you have an interpersonal issue on a trip with a flying partner, remember to "Contact your Union First".

AFA and ALPA Professional Standards committee will be circulating luggage tags with the "UNION FIRST" logo.  This tag will have printed on it the contact information of our respective Professional Standards Committees. Professional Standards members are trained in conflict resolution, can offer a third-party perspective, and can support behavior change through awareness.  In fact, contacting your Professional Standards Committee often facilitates a quick resolution to most issues.  This luggage tag is intended to remind all of us of the successful work of our respective EAP Committees.
