AFA Listening Tour
We want to hear from you!
The AFA Listening Tour this winter and spring includes Local, MEC and International Officers.
Our union is not an institution. It's you and me and all of aviation's first responders. To ensure our union is reflecting the needs and hopes of Flight Attendants today, these meetings seek to gather your questions, concerns and ideas.
All Flight Attendants are welcome!

*UNIFORM INFORMATION WEBSITE
To all AFA members who have experienced averse reactions to the new uniforms there is a new website that AFA-CWA has designed to give you all the information you need to know about the Twin-Hill uniforms and your reactions. Even if you haven't had a reaction I still encourage you to go on the website to educate yourself on this topic.
On the website you are given detail instructions if you experience any reactions. Also we have Information on how AFA is presently advocating for you. There is even detail information on the chemicals that may be found in different uniform pieces that may cause skin irritants.
Please take the time and log onto http://www.afacwa.org/uniforms.
*Envoy W2s now available!
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. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
