As we move forward into the new year, our Base Representatives and Negotiating Team (NT) are even more excited to get involved with the members. After finishing a comprehensive survey, we heard loud and clear that our Flight Attendants wanted more one on one time with their NT Members and Base Reps to ask questions, get involved, and voice their concerns. We’ve decided to roll out base meetings over the next couple months, and we plan to visit all of our bases. Scheduled meetings are listed below. We will be announcing more dates shortly, so please stay tuned!

On January 31st, we completed our first meeting in Las Vegas. We had a great turnout of over 40 Flight Attendants. We were also happy to see Flight Attendants ranging in seniority from our most recent new hire class to Flight Attendants who have been with Allegiant for over a decade. We held an open forum and addressed many questions and concerns. It was also a great time for our members to meet part of the NT and get to know the people that are fighting for a fair contract at the negotiating table. Following our meeting, Tracy Tulle hosted an open forum at the training center. Flight Attendants were encouraged to attend this meeting as well. Some of the unanswered questions during our meeting were addressed in Tracy’s meeting. Both meetings were a great success, and we thank all those that came out and showed their support. We cannot wait to visit more bases in the next few months.

If you can’t make a base meeting, we also host “Town Hall” conference calls. They provide an excellent opportunity to hear the latest negotiations news and receive answers to your questions DIRECTLY from your Negotiating Committee Members and your TWU Advisor. We held a well attended conference call on February 21, and we will be announcing more in the near future.

Thank you again to LAS for their great support! The next meetings we have scheduled are listed below. We hope to have the same great turnout at our other base meetings!
