MEC President's letter, December 14, 2018 Dec 14, 2018Dear Flying Partners, Yesterday, Flight Attendants across the world showed up in unprecedented numbers to demonstrate in solidarity that we are against United’s announced plans to cut staffing. United AFA Flight Attendants are standing together with a unified message, and our solidarity spoke volumes to United management.
December 13, 2018 - System-Wide Day of Action Nov 20, 2018We need you – the power of our Union. The new cuts to staffing and service in a time of massive profits is the last straw, but the reality is that management is failing to deliver on several fronts. The continuing glitches, contract provisions that haven’t been implemented because of automation limitations are nothing less than unacceptable.
Great Job! Now Here's Your Punishment Nov 5, 2018By now most, if not all of us, have read John Slater’s recent communication regarding the changes to service and staffing that will become effective as of February 1, 2019, unless we stop it.  This is unacceptable and an outrageous result for the work group that has done our part to deliver these great operational and fiscal results. None of this is acceptable to us.   

President's Message - We Do Not Agree With These Changes to “Enhance Staffing.” Speak up, Speak out and Stay United, AFA! Sep 21, 2018Ladies and Gentlemen: Without warning, a company communication on Established Staffing Guidelines announced “new” procedures that violates our contract within just days of its full implementation. Let me be clear: We do not agree with these changes to “enhance staffing.”
AFA Special E-Lines - September 18, 2018 Sep 18, 2018The first step in the integration of all United Flight Attendants, is the bidding process which will finally, after 8 years, bring us together as of October 1, flying on the same aircraft.  Some of us were excited for the merge, some were unsure and others preferred to keep things status quo, however collectively we stepped forward on to the process of bidding for our new future together.  
MEC President's Speech, September 11, 2018, Flight 93 Memorial Sep 12, 2018My name is Ken Diaz, and I'm President of The Association of Flight Attendants United Airlines Master Executive Council. I'm honored to be with you today, and to speak on behalf of our Flight Attendant Union. At today's Memorial Observance, we join all Americans who are paying tribute, and recognizing the astonishing acts of heroism the nation witnessed in the skies and on the ground, on the morning of September 11, 2001.  
MEC President's letter on implementation Aug 24, 2018We all understand that we cannot, despite any apprehension, let perfect stand in the way of progress. We are convinced that standing in the same place waiting for some ambiguous sign that the perfect time to move forward “has arrived” is neither the way forward nor is it a sign of leadership. 
MEC Officer Letter - Policy Changes Aug 3, 2018Ladies and Gentlemen:Recent announcements from the company regarding two items have created a number of questions and, in some cases, unnecessary controversy. The two items to which we refer are the establishment of the Bonus Bucks Program which incorporated distribution of the co-branded United Explorer Card as a mandatory part of our Inflight service and the revision to the Photography and Videography policy that appears in the Hemispheres Magazine onboard company aircraft. Both of these policies directly affect Flight Attendants.
What the Janus Decision Means for all of Us Jun 27, 2018Citing a violation of First Amendment rights, the United States Supreme Court today ruled that public sector unions cannot charge fair-share fees to non-members. The 5-4 majority opinion of the court in Janus v. AFSCME Council 31 has far reaching implications beyond this union member and the Council. This decision deals a blows to all of our freedoms as citizens of the United States of America. 
MEC Officer Letter – October 1st Implementation Apr 20, 2018Following ratification of our Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement (JCBA), the company and the Union Members of the Joint Implementation Team (JIT) set to work to establish the fundamental system requirements that would be used in building the common scheduling platform on which all United Flight Attendants will be scheduled.
