PLEASE review ALL printed information available prior to our Council meeting.  There is much to review and having reviewed the information prior to our discussion will allow all of us to cover more questions.  All the  information is on the AFA website, linked here >>> 
FURLOUGH INFORMATION PAGE  as well as on Flying Together.  We recommend reading ALL that is available...these are important decisions and circumstances affecting the entire membership.

 

AFA Q&A:  https://unitedafa.org/covid-19-recovery/qanda/

QUESTIONS? Please contact AFA at:  COVID-19recovery@unitedafa.org

 

· PLEASE, continue to ask questions....even when you think you understand all the details. 

· PLEASE participate in the ZOOM meeting 'just in case' in order to, at a minimum, confirm what you may already know.

· DO NOT rely on social media for answers...the consequence of incorrect information is too important to your career. 

There is also a great benefit in listening to the questions that others may ask. We look forward to another large turn-out for participation.

With all the printed documents, Q&As, Company TownHalls, Local Council ZOOM Meetings, etc, there REMAINS a sizeable amount of MISINFORMATION and MISUNDERSTANDING regarding the impending Reduction-In-Force announced by United Management effective October 1st

Social media remains the single LEAST RELIABLE means of accumulating ACCURATE information respective to your immediate career as a Flight Attendant.  We all have friends and flying partners we KNOW have not studied the various communications available…..and for whatever reason have not deemed it a priority to do so. IF you know of someone(s) like this, PLEASE recommend they attend these zoom sessions as well as READ and ASK QUESTIONS. 

THOUSANDS of our Flight Attendants have never been through such a dramatic downsizing involving voluntary AND INVOLUNTARY furloughs.  Many are not familiar with the CONTRACTUAL VOLUNTARY FURLOUGH PROGRAM nor the PARTNERSHIP MITIGATION PROGRAM…..both programs meant to keep as many FAs as possible, when able and willing, attached, if not to their active work, then at least to their active status for benefits purpose.  There will still be many who have simply NEVER lost a job they so dearly love doing, and need to understand all that entails as well as their CONTRACTUAL RECALL RIGHTS. 

Many of us HAVE experienced ALL of the above so please know you are not alone, and we want to help you learn the resources available to you throughout.  It first starts with understanding how the contractual processes and protections work (JCBA Section 18 and Section 16). 

There is no mistaking or understating that the decisions made, and yet to be made, by United management are drastic…. with much depending on issues outside of their and our control – the COVID19 pandemic and evident resurgence; and as well, actions remaining to be taken by the U.S. Congress on legislation addressing this crisis. All of this is fast approaching and can be overwhelming.  However, one of the best defenses to combat feeling overwhelmed is EDUCATION – knowing the resources available and the processes affecting your career which will impact you in the near-term AND long-term.  Your AFA Representatives are DAILY working to ensure you have a clear understanding of all issues AND are pursuing ANY means to lessen the consequences on our career as United Airlines Flight Attendants. 

For some issues – such as the duration and course of the pandemic - there just are no answers to be had other than to accept the seriousness of the situation facing our Nation and the world.  Even in that obvious reporting there is disagreement and dissension, but the fact remains there IS a worldwide health pandemic and there ARE steps we can each take and advocate to our fellow flying partners, families, passengers, and public-at-large to do the same so that we have the best chance of returning to “normal” – whatever shape that “new normal” may take.

The Company has mandated we all wear masks – do so - and do so correctly.  Wash your hands.  Practice social distancing.  Respect your and other’s personal space.  Act responsibly and respectfully (actually that applies with or without a pandemic!)  Hang in there....we will support each other and will get through all of this together.


SEE YOU TOMORROW ON ZOOM!
