F/A layoffs


Sep 2, 2002
Involuntary ANP Imposed

Ladies and Gentlemen:

The unprecedented aviation crisis shows no signs of abating. As a result of the effects of the war, the April schedule has been reduced in response to decreased passenger booking levels. It is with great sorrow that I must report the company’s most recent announcement that they will further reduce our Flight Attendant workforce by approximately 2,300 active and inactive Flight Attendants beginning April 1, 2003, by invoking Section 5.L. (involuntary ANP) “Work Stoppage,â€￾ of the Agreement.

This number does not include those who are currently on voluntary or involuntary furlough.

Flight Attendants whose classification seniority (SW seniority) is junior to November 29, 1997 may be affected.
