The Joint Negotiating Committee met with the company this past week in Dallas, and continued the exchanging of proposals. To date, we have Tentative Agreements (T/A), on the following seven (7) sections:

•    Moving Expenses
•    Common Domicile / Co-Terminals
•    CRAF  (Civil Reserve Air Fleet)
•    Probation
•    Medical Examinations
•    Voluntary Contributions / FlightPAC  (APFA PAC)
•    Hostage Benefits

During the week of June 30th, the JNC will brief the AFA Master Executive Council and the APFA Board of Directors on our progress

Next week, joint negotiations will continue in Charlotte, NC. We hope to begin discussions of the scheduling and related sections in the near future.  As we continue the 150-day process towards a joint contract, we feel confident about our progress to date.

Joint Negotiating Committee
ABOUT APFA: The Association of Professional Flight Attendants, founded in 1977, represents the more than 16,000 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.
