Welcome to Denver, Class 2217!

 


Please complete this very important 1-minute report regarding Call Hold Times:

[click the following link]>>>  Excessive Call-Hold-Times Report 


Excessive Hold Times, Please Report!
As Flight Attendants we are frequently referred to as 'the face of the company'. In addition to our role as aviation’s first responder we balance the customer experience and United’s brand expectations. When we are provided the necessary support and tools to perform our duties as Flight Attendants, we feel empowered and supported in our workplace and are able to fully focus on the job at hand.

However, when the required support goes missing, it leaves us in a frustrating and uncomfortable position resulting in us wasting valuable time and energy seeking answers or assistance. One area where this continues to be an issue is related to our need to contact Crew Scheduling and/or the Flight Attendant Support Team.  Many Flight Attendants continue to report excessive hold times, call disconnects after holding, and disconnects mid-call.

This is never acceptable and is not only frustrating to Flight Attendants but harmful to the operation. We need your continued support to report and advocate to find the source of these problems.

When Members report issues such as this, documentation can be collected and used to push for change. We are our biggest advocates and together we can drive the changes we need to see.

Thank you in advance for completing the survey (link above).

 



 

To the Council 9 Membership;

During my time in office it has been an honor to serve as your elected AFA Local Council 9 President.  For the past 14 ½ years my goal, and the challenge, has been to faithfully represent the collective best interests of the Denver and Phoenix C9 membership.  Thank you for your support over the years and constructive input during the many, many issues we faced together as a workgroup.

The Council 9 membership has elected an excellent team of representatives in Chris, Martina, Zac, Peter, and Emmy who begin their term in office tomorrow, July 1st, and with whom I have had the privilege of working.  I would also extend my sincere gratitude to the many C9 Committee Volunteers past and present who have, and continue to, offer their time and expertise in various Committee specialties – all for the benefit of assisting their fellow Flight Attendants in times of need.

I look forward to the representation and leadership of Chris, and his entire team of Officers and Committee members in the years ahead. I could not have performed my responsibilities over the years without them.

Again, thank you all.

Respectfully,

Ken
