Mission & Vision​

Your negotiating committee, elected in 2019, is committed to personally listen to you and gather your feedback regarding our upcoming contract negotiations. Our Negotiating Committee is steeped in experience and with the support of our MEC Committees we have been preparing for negotiations since April 2019. We recognize that the most important part of being prepared for negotiations is You - our focus is to ensure that every voice is heard - not only today, but throughout the entire negotiation process.Our goal, to give each and every Flight Attendant an opportunity to tell us about your aspirations and priorities for the upcoming negotiations through our Membership Survey and Listening Tour. Your voice Matters. These negotiations are about you. This is your contract, and with more than 25,000 strong you will make a powerful force in support of a new contract.
