Inside Negotiations and Industry Perspective

Watch this video for an inside look at what led to the $1.9 Billion Tentative Agreement.







"It is more important than ever that we cast an informed vote for our future. I have been able to join our Joint Negotiating Committee for two Information Sessions to date, and a few questions I received directly from members prompted me to produce this video message to all members explaining the International President's role, the overall task of your JNC, the industry perspective and outlook as well as the next steps following this vote.

"Thank you for all you do every day as aviation’s first responders. Take care of yourselves and each other. We are stronger and better together. And as always, Fly safe."

- AFA-CWA International President Sara Nelson.


United Merged Flight Attendant Seniority List:

Seniority Integration is not part of contract negotiations. It is a separate process, required by law to be completed in accordance with the AFA-CWA Constitution and Bylaws. The merged seniority list is only provided to the company for implementation at the point of a ratified Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement (JCBA). 

In the interest of transparency and in response to a significant number of requests from United Flight Attendants, AFA-CWA has published the Merged Seniority List ("List") compiled by the Seniority Merger Integration Committee ("SMIC"). The methodology for compiling the List is final, in accordance with the Constitution and federal law. 

PLEASE NOTE: Earlier Friday afternoon we were still testing this page when the test link was leaked to Facebook. The list is a huge amount of data and will require a long load time on a phone. Also there was so much traffic that it caused the site to crash. It is back up now, but please expect that it could run slowly when thousands of Flight Attendants are working in it at the same time.
