Our goal is to focus on the top priorities - our biggest issues - and get those resolved. This isn’t the time for long protracted negotiations. Mesa is doing well, financially, so let’s get in there and get our improvements now.
The Negotiations Survey will be sent to members in good standing at 12:00 PHX time tomorrow, July 30, 2021. You will have until 23:59 on Friday, August 20, 2021 to complete and submit your answers. Follow instructions CAREFULLY!
Here is more information for how new Councils are built. We still need volunteers for Committees. If you have not already, please let us know if you are interested in volunteering!

Dear IAH Flight Attendants:

After many cancelled meetings, we were finally able to get the agenda item to make IAH it’s own council presented to the Executive Board and voted on January 31, 2022. The Executive Board voted unanimously to make IAH Mesa AFA Council 44 effective March 1, 2022! Congratulations and thank you to all the volunteers that stepped forward to build the infrastructure necessary to make this happen!

Matter of Contention

Today’s matter of contention is Grievance # 27-99-2-22-21.  This grievance is also titled “MEC-No Show.”  MEC, as you may already know, stands for “Master Executive Council.”  An MEC Grievance is filed on behalf of all Mesa Flight Attendants.  Now, let’s explain the grievance.

Section 7.E.1. of the collective bargaining agreement provides:

Dear Flight Attendants,

Your Negotiations Team was back at the bargaining table with the company the week of December 6th. Below is an update on those talks. Unfortunately, we were unable to meet as much as we would have liked but are prepared to put in extra time in January to make up for lost time due to the company's unavailability.
