    The sick policy is part of our contract( mechanics). That is why I get half pay for a sick day as fleet negotiated it for us. I read your contract and sick days are in there.

    You sound like management. Anything can be negotiated in a contract.

    People who provide you factual information sound like Management to you?

    Guess you relate better to people who lie to you then.

    Similar to customer service and fleet service which as you know has its share of females.It might suck but i doubt its discriminatory. Saw a crew news once the dude said their are over 400,000 applicants for flight attendant job at AA, think any will pull their applications now ?

    Customs & Border Patrol Bag Search/Questioning:

    We have received several reports from Flight Attendants arriving into the United States from foreign ports, stating they are being subjected to bag searches. Additionally, several are reporting that the Customs Officers are stating the company has asked them to perform these searches, and report their findings to American Airlines.

    If you have a similar experience, please contact us at safety@apfa.org with as much information as possible.

    Details should include:
    • Flight number & date
    • Arrival station
    • Officer’s name & badge number
    • Officer’s comments regarding search

    In Unity,


    Jeffrey Ewing
    APFA National Safety & Security Chairperson

    Actually it is, the TWU contract references the use of a 1969 agreement for sick time use.

    It’s a bad argument, the union is weakening its position by saying because they are mostly women. All the company will do is show how much FAs call in sick compared to everyone else. When anFA calls in sick, it’s not for one day, it’s for several days at a shot.

    Unfortunately they seem to get sick mostly over Christmas until after New Years. That would suck always being sick over the holidays, poor girls.

    I know there are plenty of men, but their own union says gender discrimination. Seems like the APFA President is being confrontational to be confrontational. Does she have a side business?

    Facts?

    Fact: Flight attendants are using gender politics to push an agenda that has no basis in reality.

    Fact: Calling me Leely Lally in an effort to minimize me and debase my opinion does not make the flight attendants claim of victimization any less absurd.
