A message from Ken Diaz - MEC President Apr 19, 2019This week United Airlines released the first quarter (Q1) earnings report, beating Wall Street’s expectations for not only growth, but for profit.  United reported first-quarter net income of $147 million, diluted earnings per share of $0.52, pre-tax earnings of $184 million and pre-tax margin of 2.0 percent.
MEC Officer Letter - March 23, 2019 Mar 23, 2019Ladies and Gentlemen: Over the past few months, we have been aware that many of you have voiced concerns about illicit trip brokering where certain individuals have been improperly “parking” and holding trips for their personal gain. We’ve heard your frustration and recognize how many of you have exercised restraint in reporting this egregious activity to management because we are unionists.
Satellite Base Update Feb 28, 2019Ladies and Gentlemen: As you have been told, your MEC Officers have been in conversations with management since late last year discussing the establishment of satellite bases at SAN, MCO and PHX.  We have discussed a number of topics with management and have reached concurrence on the importance of a significant number of items for Flight Attendants who would be based at these locations.
MEC President's Letter, February 12, 2019 Feb 12, 2019I spent Monday and Tuesday in Washington, DC with AFA leaders from around the nation planning our union's response to an unprecedented threat to our lives and our jobs. Standing together to thwart this threat of a partial government shutdown is also an opportunity for our union to grow stronger for the fights that matter in our daily lives at work.
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.
