In reference to the two diversions that occurred this week and the passing of one of our FA’s after a possible fume event, we the members want immediate attention brought to this issue. We demand that the Union and Company address this issue with action. We want particulate masks issued to each FA immediately. We would like a safety advisory issued that informs each of us as to what action should be taken if we are involved in one of these events. Please send this email to bring immediate attention to this issue! Our lives matter!

As a member of APFA and flight attendant of whom you serve to represent, I am voicing my support to remove Laura Glading from office. Some base presidents have called for Laura Glading’s resignation, I whole heartedly support them, and I urge you to do the same. It would be the single most healing thing that would restore much needed trust in the APFA by the membership. The online petition to have Glading resign placed on a ballot garnered more than 5,300 signatures, proving the strong opinion of flight attendants, especially considering how many flight attendants are not even on social media. Now we are coming together to give you our voice. Removing Glading could be exactly the symbolic measure needed to restore faith in the BOD as a whole and show management that APFA will no longer play the role of lapdog to management. Leslie Mayo’s defection is glaring proof that the working together mentality must come to an end if APFA has any hope of once again becoming the strong independent organization we all know it should be.
