Welcome Class 1624
Today, we welcome the 60 graduating Members of class of 1623 to the line.  Our newest flying partners will be reporting to SFO, IAH and EWR.  They will report to their respective domicile(s) on August 2, 2016 for orientation and will be available to fly on August 4, 2016. Please help us welcome these new Flight Attendants to our family. 

United Merged Flight Attendant Seniority List
Seniority Integration is not part of contract negotiations. It is a separate process, required by law to be completed in accordance with the AFA-CWA Constitution and Bylaws. The merged seniority list is only provided to the company for implementation at the point of a ratified Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement (JCBA).

In the interest of transparency and in response to a significant number of requests from United Flight Attendants, AFA-CWA has published the Merged Seniority List ("List") compiled by the Seniority Merger Integration Committee ("SMIC"). The methodology for compiling the List is final, in accordance with the Constitution and federal law.

We ask that you continue to avoid rumor and speculation on the line and on social media. By getting information and answers from your Union Leadership or other official Union publications we can best ensure the accuracy of the information we consider in reaching our decision.
