It is with a bittersweet heart that I tell you all that February 9th will be my last day here at GoJet. I will always be grateful for my time spent here because of all of you.

A Note from your MEC President:

December Flying

Bidding Timeline:

Bidding Opens November 10 at 1200 CT

It has been a long uphill battle for all of us. While we continue to push management towards incentivizing our incredible Flight Attendant group, we have made some headway. We settled the October bid timeline grievance and were able to negotiate this benefit.

Starting tomorrow, all Flight Attendants who do not call in SICK between October 16 and November 30 will be given an additional 8 sick hours in their bank. These additional hours can be helpful to those Flight Attendants who have had to endure Covid leaves or those who may have been depleting their sick bank.

The November 2021 bid period will be November 1-30. That makes November a 30-day bid month with a minimum of 11 days off.

Per the company memo (November New Bid Timeframe), GoJet had to adjust flying again for the month of November due to staffing issues.

The Bidding Timeline for November 2021 will be:

Bids open October 11 at 1700 CT

Bids close October 16 at 1700 CT

Preliminary Awards posted October 21 at 1200 CT

Estimated Number of Lines:

STL 22

ORD 47

EWR 45

RIC 8

Have you heard a scheduler say that they “don’t talk about the contract”..? Has a scheduler ever told you that you don’t see “the bigger picture”…? We are tired of being pushed off the phone and we are here to stand up for ourselves and say that OUR CONTRACT IS THE BIGGER PICTURE!

We are planning a virtual membership meeting for October 4, 2021 at 1100 CT / 1200 ET! We've been through a lot this past summer. We want to brief you on our discussions with management, our proposed solutions, and how we can fight back.
Your AFA leadership has been in negotiations with management about October flying. Flight Attendants are aware of tremendous and difficult changes to September and, potentially, October schedules.
Many of you have already seen your upcoming September pairings change. Almost every time we log in, there is a new notification now.
