JNC Calls for Day of Action


The JNC would like you to consider the following points: 

·         United Airlines is making record profits. 

·         In 2015 United will see income 5X higher than in 2013.

·         United’s operating profit in 2015 - 2017 is expected to be $5 billion.

·         Jeff Smisek’s pay is up 32%.

·         Top executives and shareholders are cashing in.

·         United’s stock price is up 162% since negotiations began.

·         United has $7.0 Billion in cash on its balance sheet. 

·         United just announced it is investing $100 million in a Brazilian airline (but it can’t invest in us, the frontline workers who spend more time with passengers than anyone else).


These are not concessionary negotiations.  These negotiations are about putting three work groups together to complete this merger and move United forward.  It’s been three years, and it’s been long enough.  It’s Our Turn and It’s Past Time 

The JNC is unanimous in calling on all Flight Attendants to demonstrate our solidarity. On July 16th, across the system, we will conduct a system-wide Day of Action. We will stand shoulder-to-shoulder for a joint Contract that recognizes and respects what each of us brought to this merger and the hard work all of us do for United Airlines everyday.

New Red AFA Pin Resolution


During a joint meeting of the CAL, CMI and UAL MECs on June 30, 2015, the Flight Attendant leadership unanimously voted to change our official AFA pin to the color red in support of our negotiations. This is now our official AFA pin and we encourage all Members to put it on and wear it until we have a ratified Contract that reflects our contributions at United Airlines.

The full official red AFA pin resolution is included Here
