Dues Forgiveness Ballot - Voting Now Open

The APFA Board of Directors, at its May 6, 2015 meeting, passed a resolution proposing an amendment to the APFA Constitution that will address the dues balance obligation of members in an unpaid status.

Under the proposed amendment, if a member was on an unpaid status at any time between January 8, 2010 and June 18, 2014, and has a dues balance accrued pursuant to Article II, Section 4.B.3 of the APFA Constitution in effect during that time period, that balance will be forgiven if within three (3) months of the ratification, the member makes a one-time payment to APFA of $123.00 or the unpaid dues balance accrued during that period, whichever is smaller.

ABOUT APFA: The Association of Professional Flight Attendants, founded in 1977, represents the more than 25,000 active flight attendants at American Airlines. In November 2011, American’s parent company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Throughout the bankruptcy trial, APFA President Laura Glading served on the Unsecured Creditors’ Committee where she advocated for the American Airlines Flight Attendants. In February 2013, American and US Airways announced their intention to combine the carriers and on December 9, 2013, AA exited bankruptcy and the merger was final. Achieving a merger inside bankruptcy is unprecedented in the industry and would not have occurred without the efforts of American’s labor unions, particularly APFA.
