      MEMO: COVID Vaccine Update 10.21.2021

      Dear AMFA Members: Mandatory vaccine policies have in many ways added to the stress of the ongoing pandemic, and many of you have expressed your frustration to AMFA leadership about this divisive and sensitive matter. This message is not an update nor is it a change in course for AMFA. Our primary focus remains to protect your collective bargaining agreements (CBAs) as well as your job and ability to earn. This message is directed to those of you who for any reason have not yet either been vaccinated or applied for an exemption from mandatory vaccine policies at Alaska Airlines, Horizon Air, or Southwest Airlines.

      MEMO: Mandatory Vaccination; Seeking a Religion-Based Accomodation

      Dear Members: We have reached the conclusion -- after multiple hours of meetings, review of past and pending federal litigation, and counsel from AMFA Legal – that implementation of the airline industry vaccination mandate cannot be prevented. It is still possible, however, that an employee who objects to vaccination based on sincerely held religious beliefs may be eligible for a reasonable accommodation by your carrier that does not require vaccination. For those who believe they may qualify for such a reasonable exemption, we provide the following guidance.

      MEMO: COVID Vaccine Mandate Update

      Dear Members: Southwest Airlines Co. and Alaska Air Group Inc. both recently announced they are subject to a legal obligation as federal contractors to require employees to submit to a compulsory vaccination process during a national crisis. Your National Executive Council’s (NEC) primary focus is, as it has always been, to protect AMFA Members’ collective bargaining agreements (CBA) and job security. While our carriers assert that they are bound by the federal government contract mandate, several questions remain pertaining to application of this program to our members.

      Dear Members: We understand many of us are unnerved by the recent vaccination mandate, but we knew this day was possibly coming and have tried to prepare for it. Southwest Airlines Co. and Alaska Air Group Inc. both recently announced they are subject to legal obligation, as a federal contractor, to require their employees to submit to the “Federal Contactor Vaccination Requirement for all Employees.” The National Executive Council’s (NEC) primary focus is to protect our craft and the collective bargaining agreements (CBAs) we represent. While our carriers surge forward to implement the federal government contract mandate, a number of questions remain in regard to the impact and obligation of our members.

      It has been just over three (3) weeks since the launch of the Maintenix (MXi) program within Southwest Airlines (SWA) recordkeeping, and the observations and reports received from AMFA members have been discouraging, revealing numerous issues and shortcomings within the program. Being discouraged and upset with the challenges and obstacles that arise is understandable, but we must remember compliance is the top priority when it comes to signing-off the work that has been performed. DO NOT utilize any short-cuts or work-arounds to get the job done. The burden of this system’s fallacies rests with the Company, not the AMFA members that have been forced to endure the frustration that has been created. While the Company continues to attempt to correct the issues that have been identified, remain vigilant in uncovering anything that may compromise the integrity of compliance. The Company has issued numerous Know Before Fix notices via Read and Signs to ensure that those MXi program shortcomings are addressed, thereby increasing the information load to the end users.
