45thAnnual Board of Directors Meeting

The 45thAnnual Board of Directors (BOD) Meeting will be held June 24, 2017 at the Sheraton Grand Phoenix, 340 N. 3rdStreet, Phoenix, AZ. This is a budget only Board of Directors Meeting. Last year, during the 44thAnnual BOD meeting, the leadership of our Union made a decision to shorten this year’s BOD meeting electing to address exclusively our annual budgeting process. This action saved more than $200,000 in Member dues. As a result, the only Agenda item for discussion is the annual AFA budget.

This year’s meeting schedule is a bit different based on the action of the Board of Directors to make this a “Budget only” BOD meeting. There will also be a one-day MEC meeting that will be held in Phoenix on Sunday, June 25th. The focus of this meeting will be to approve the United MEC budget for the 2017 -2018 Fiscal year.

Fight For 10

You and Your Friends and Family Can Make the Difference for our Rest.  Continue to support our Fight for 10 Campaign! Flight Attendants from every single airline have signed the petition to Congress, but now it's time to redouble our efforts. Urge Congress to take decisive action NOW on the scientific results of the existing fatigue studies and equalize rest with our flight deck counterparts - 10 hours minimum. 

Call your Senator TODAY at 855-534-1774 and tell them Flight Attendants need 10 hours minimum rest and a Fatigue Risk Management Plan:

Here's what you can say when you are connected:

“I’m your constituent and a Flight Attendant. Studies show I can become fatigued at work. I'm calling to urge the Commerce Committee to include 10-hour, non-reducible minimum rest for Flight Attendants and a Fatigue Risk Management Plan in the FAA Reauthorization Bill. Thank you.”

 In Solidarity,

Kim, Rob, Sheela, Mei, and Ruby
