Everyday as aviation’s First Responders, it is important that we practice safety and security procedures. It’s critical that we enforce FAR’s that require specific actions on our part such as FAR 121.391(d), which states that during taxi, Flights Attendants must remain at their jumpseats "with safety belts and shoulder harnesses fastened during taxi unless performing safety-related duties."
You can show your support for Breast Cancer Awareness during the month of October by participating in the PINK Program. You can wear approved pink scarves and ties with your uniform from Oct. 1 – 31, 2016.
Our recent communication to the joint Membership regarding the effective date of the recently negotiated rates of pay is generating a number of questions.
On September 16, you received our first combined communication from the MEC Communication Committee. As we explained last week, communications will now be coming from one combined source.
The Fall Meeting of the United Master Executive Council (MEC) began in Chicago today. Your Local Council President, joined by the 20 other presidents from around our system, addressed the business of our Union and the issues that are important to you.

On September 6, 2016, the official merging of the Master Executive Council (MEC) took place and is currently transitioning into one MEC. The next step in this process is to combine the Local Councils at bases where a duplication of Councils exists.
The Fall Regular Meeting of the recently merged United Master Executive Council (MEC) will take place the week of September 20th, 2016.
The vacation bidding window is currently open and will close on Wednesday, October 5, 2016, midnight (CT). Your vacation bid screen will reflect the number of days you are entitled to and that you elected to take in 2016, including any Flex vacation days.
