Guten Tag Frankfurt (Apr 30, 2018)

Guten Tag Frankfurt,

Our AFA JIT (Joint Implementation Team) can be quoted as saying, the “Big Bang” is just around the corner, and they’re referring to Day One of October; Contract Implementation day. Remember, there is a lot at stake and a lot more work that needs to be done leading up to this company set JCBA implementation date. As that date approaches, June, FRA Inflight Senior Manager, and I will together have a presence in the base to listen to your implementation excitement, concerns or phobias. This will be a wonderful opportunity for you to have both your AFA and company Management in one room to address any concerns you may have leading up to the “Big Bang”. It’s time to finalize this merger and flying together as ONE Flight Attendant group is imperative to our ability to enjoy every benefit outlined in JCBA. Both June and I are looking forward to our candid conversations with each of you in the coming months when we will hold these base visits together. 

The first of our base visits together will take place on Wednesday May 16th and Thursday May 17th from 09:00 to 15:00 and again on Tuesday May 22nd and Wednesday May 23rd from 09:00-15:00. 
We will be providing refreshments and savory food on each of these days. 

We hope to see as many of you there as possible. 

Also, our annual AFA Dinner/Meeting will take place on May 25th from 17:00 to 22:00 at the Frankfurt Marriott. This year we will also have live entertainment, by one of our very own, during dinner. Please RSVP by May 20th. You can RSVP by contacting any of your three AFA Officers. My e-mail address is mblake@unitedafa.org or my telephone numbers to send me an SMS are +4915772100000 or +12026798890.
We’re looking forward to an informative and fun evening together recognizing our amazing Union and your  participation in it, making us Stronger Together, Better Together. 

Always in Solidarity,

Michael Blake
