Implementation of Training Pay from the JCBA for LAA Flight Attendants, originally scheduled for February 1, 2015, is being delayed.  This provision provides for $75.00 on each day of training replacing any trip removal pay and guarantee protections that previously applied if a trip removal was necessary to attend training.  Due to the significant amount of training that will continue to take place for LAA Flight Attendants in 2015 and beyond (e.g. Airbus, 777-300, 787, Overwater/IFS, etc.) the Negotiating Team, with guidance from the APFA Board of Directors, has agreed to delay implementation of the $75 training pay in order to continue trip removal pay and monthly guarantee protections.  Training pay of $9.50 per hour will continue to apply when required to attend training on days off.   

Please note the proffer ballot for the February Overwater Training will now close on Friday, January 2, 2014 at 1000 CT.

ABOUT APFA: The Association of Professional Flight Attendants, founded in 1977, represents the more than 24,000 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.
