“Right to Work” - It’s Just WRONG!

Date: 02/21/2017
The truth is that in "Right to Work" states, workers make less in pay, have access to fewer benefits, and are nearly 50% more likely to get hurt on the job because Unions are often the watch dogs and enforcers of workplace safety standards.

Cabin Jumpseat (CJA) Protocol on Weight Restricted Flights

Date: 02/21/2017
Recently there has been some confusion about the usage of cabin jumpseats on weight restricted flights. Section 3.A of our JCBA was implemented October 4, 2016. When a cabin jumpseat is available, but the aircraft is weight restricted, cabin jumpseat authority will not be denied to any Flight Attendant, regardless of pre-merger affiliation. The number of Flight Attendants utilizing cabin jumpseats on weight restricted flights is limited to the number of available cabin jumpseats, and should never be denied due to the flight being weight restricted, provided all listing and check in protocols have been met.
