Preliminary bid awards are out. Please review and submit protests by noon, January 23, 2017
As we welcome 2017, we want to remind you of the pay increases this New Year brings to us. We ended 2016 with many positive changes and soon our LGA domicile will open. We look forward to 2017 bringing us continued good news and the return of all the places we had before and much more. We will continue our fight for improvements to our 2012 Collective Bargaining Agreement.
Together working to support each other, we will continue to see the improvements. This year brings our first AAG profit sharing from 2016. Towards the end of the first quarter we will know what percentage of profits will be paid out from our 2016 earnings**. We should know the exact date of the profit sharing payout in early February. We have also contacted the company regarding the delay in our Twinhill uniform funding, they are working on it and should have information soon.
From your entire MEC and ORD/DFW Lecs we look forward to a prosperous New Year for you and all our Flight Attendant family.
Instructions to secure an alternative uniform: We want to remind you that, currently, any Flight Attendant (whether or not you have symptoms), can call the American Airlines/TwinHill call center (1-800-327-0117; select 2,5,6,1, pause, 2). Ask for instructions to return your new uniform garments and notify them which of the following three options you want:
LGA Crew Base Returns First Quarter 2017
Today, Envoy announced we will see the return of our LGA crew base in the first quarter of 2017. The initial opening will be less than 100 Flight Attendants and there will be gradual increase over the following 12 months, once operations begin. The base will operate E145/140 aircraft from LGA to cities in the U.S. and Canada.
More details should be made available in the coming weeks. This news strengthens the fact that AA recognizes Envoy’s performance and we hope this trend continues. Our Flight Attendants have continued to show professionalism through adverse times throughout the merger. Envoy has been and continues to be a top operator compared to the other American Eagle carriers providing lift for the AA network.
Once a date is determined on the opening, there will be a vacancy bid sent out to all Flight Attendants a few months prior to the official start date. We will work closely with management as we get closer to the start date of the LGA base. As information becomes available we will be sure to share it with you.
