Seattle Special Local Council Meeting

Seattle Base Closure

Friday March 26, 2021 at 12pm  Click Here to Register


Dear Seattle Family:

Recently the company made an announcement detailing their intent to close the Seattle Flight Attendant satellite base.  There is no doubt, this is devastating news.  We are especially disappointed that after just over 11 months, the company would decide to close our base after many people moved and/or made life changing decisions.

Let’s be clear…The COVID-19 pandemic is a temporary problem.  Our company has made this very drastic and unreasonable decision to address a situation that may correct itself after the COVID-19 vaccine is widely distributed.  The communication from John Slater suggests that there are problems with Seattle Flight Attendant dependability [outside of the COVID-19 situation] as a factor in this closure.  We completely disagree with this assessment.  We are in a global pandemic that has lasted more than a year.  This decision is simply unconscionable.  Flight Attendants are not responsible for this! 

We have met with the company and they have not been willing to consider a different path.  We will continue to meet with them in the coming months and will never stop advocating for an alternative solution.

Over the next few weeks, we will have Seattle specific meetings to address all questions and concerns.  We will have the first meeting on Tuesday February 9, 2021.  Click Here to register.  AFA Council 12 is here for you in any way to ensure you are supported through this life altering event.

Should you have immediate questions or concerns, please contact us in the AFA Council 12 Office at 1-844-LOCAL-12.

Where There Is Unity, We Find Strength.

In Solidarity,

Dante Harris, President
Kimberly Burckhalter, Vice President
Sharlene Kirk, Secretary
Mary Garton, Council Representative
Anthony King, Council Representative
Timothy Trueman, Council Representative
