Spring- The Season of Renewal

Date: April 15, 2022

Spring officially started last month on March 20, and we see the signs of renewal around us today. This weekend millions of people around the world will celebrate the observance of Easter and the start of Passover, a 7-day festival that starts on the evening of Friday, April 15th, and ends Saturday, April 23, 2022.

We too are looking forward to a renewal within our airline family best signified with the introduction of so many new-hire Flight Attendants joining us on the line.  As United resumes our much anticipated international flying we expect to renew the inflight experience with new aircraft that are coming into service at an exciting pace. Our Union is moving forward on our Contract 2021 negotiations as we seek a more secure and improved future for our AFA Family.

As with any renewal, there must always be a starting point or something that came “before” that which is renewed. As we look back to 2019, a time of prosperity we all enjoyed, and then through the difficult period of COVID-19, we have a vision of what renewal looks like. While we are not yet completely through the pandemic, we have reason to look towards a better future together with a sense of renewal similar to the rebirth of spring after the season of winter.

Whether you observe Lent, which ended yesterday, Passover which begins today, Easter this Sunday, or on a walk on a beautiful spring day, we encourage you to take the spirit of renewal into your thoughts and recognize how far we have come as we plot the plans for our future.

On behalf of the United Master Executive Council and our many Union volunteers, we wish you and your families an enjoyable start to a season of renewal.
