Message from Tony
With the ongoing, evolving landscape of the coronavirus, it is our responsibility while working as flight crews to ensure our passengers safety and well-being. But more importantly we must also take care of ourselves first and foremost. Taking care of our own well-being is paramount if we are to be of any use to ourselves, our family & friends, and our passengers. Taking care of our own health needs means we can then take care of others in a responsible manner. Below is the link from AFA with a comprehensive and detailed explanation of the coronavirus and what we can do to help prevent spreading of this new virus. afacwa.org/coronavirus
Rest assured that your Local Council Officers and volunteers are in constant, daily communication with AFA MEC & International Safety Committees and the Company to advocate in the strongest terms possible for what’s best for us here in Narita.
In a topic directly related to the above article, the Company has made a series of changes to the flying in and out of China & Hong Kong from U.S. bases. Although we are not directly affected here in Narita, it will still have an indirect affect on our schedules as the Company balances the flying throughout the system. Your Council 38 Officers, Local Council Scheduling Committee, and Local Council Grievance Committee are all working diligently to ensure all contractual provisions are upheld and adhered to during this period of transition. As was true during past events like SARS and the Gulf Wars, we will only get through these challenging times by pulling together as a team and Council 38 Narita team! Please remember we are better together and stronger together!
As always, please do not hesitate to contact any of your Council 38 Officers or volunteers with any questions, concerns or suggestions you may have regarding any topic.
A friendly reminder that the Negotiations Listening Tour will have their Roadshow here in Narita on February 26, starting at 11:00am. The Roadshow will be held at the Hilton Narita Airport Hotel. Bring your questions, bring your list of improvements you want implemented in the new contract, and bring your feedback. We look forward to seeing you there!
