Grievance Rep Volunteers Needed

We postponed the grievance training until possibly September in hopes we can have more volunteers apply. Attached is the previous information we posted about the position.

We have openings for Grievance reps in all bases.

Duties and Requirements:

As a grievance rep, you will need to have thorough knowledge of the collective bargaining agreement, and must uphold the highest standard of confidentiality. The duties of the grievance rep include representing flight attendants in investigatory meetings, collecting information to file or determine if a grievance is warranted, and investigating information for flight attendants during the investigatory meetings.

Interested candidates should email their resumes to:

Lwilkes@afapsa.org

Check flight attendants can not apply, but thank you for your interest!

Candidates must also be in good standing with the Union and the Company. Minimum of one year with the Company is preferred.

After the application process, you will need to complete an online course. After passing the online course, a training with our AFA staff attorney will take place.

We need at least one rep for all bases, especially bases outside of CLT.

Being a grievance rep does hold a lot of responsibility, but it is very rewarding to represent your co-workers! We hope we have a great turnout for applicants.

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you!
