As the September 19, 2014, closing date of negotiations rapidly approaches, the JNC has great progress to report.

Tentative Agreements have been reached in the following sections:

  • Section 13 – Temporary Duty Assignment (TDY)
  • Section 22 – Filling of Vacancy
  • Section 23 – Reduction in Force (RIF)

Of course, there remains a good deal of work to be done at the negotiating table through Friday, but our team is confident that we will soon be signing off on the industry-leading contract our members deserve. There will be JNC hotlines charting our continued progress throughout the week so please stay tuned!

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.
