Negotiations Update 11/13/15

the latest on negotiations

Greetings Brothers and Sisters,

Your AFA Negotiations team met on November 9th and 10th in Philadelphia, PA in mediated talks as we  continue to push for a fair contract for Spirit Flight Attendants.  The two days of discussions were very productive as we worked through many of the outstanding issues. This extended negotiations session totaling nearly 23 hours over a two-day period demonstrates how deeply our union and the company dug down and worked hard to close out many of the remaining TA sections.  We were finally able to reach agreements on Definitions, Sick Leave, Union Activities, and Reserve as well as resolving nearly all of the open issues in the General section. This is in addition to the previously agreed to and closed out sections from prior sessions.
