Section 1 - Recognition


The Union, having been certified by the National Mediation Board, is hereby recognized by the Company as the collective bargaining representative of the craft or class of Flight Attendants in the employ of the Company to represent such employees and to negotiate and conclude an Agreement with the Company covering rates of pay, rules and working conditions, in accordance with the Railway Labor Act.

The Company recognizes the right of the Flight Attendants in its employ to perform Flight Attendant work of the nature they have customarily and traditionally performed; provided, however, that nothing herein shall be deemed to limit or restrain the Company's existing right to revise duties from time to time as the Company deems necessary for the needs of the service and provided, further, that nothing herein shall be construed to limit in any way the Company's right to assign supervisory or other personnel to perform non-Flight Attendant functions. Supervisory or other personnel of the Company shall not perform Flight Attendant work, except in emergencies, for instruction purposes, or as otherwise provided in this Agreement.
