First off, thank you for truly showing us what an active membership looks like. We couldn't be more impressed and inspired by your dedication to making Virgin America a great place to work.
Earlier this week, we received an email from Virgin America about our new ETOPS certified 200 series aircraft. While we are excited about the possibilities these new aircraft represent we foresee challenges to our working environment that must be taken into consideration. Our goal as a Union is to have a voice in decisions that affect our ability to perform our duties in a safe and manageable way. As a union, we never want to impact Virgin America's ability to increase revenue; we do believe there are alternative solutions we can come to an agreement upon with regards to our working conditions.
We have opened the lines of communication with Virgin America and will keep you updated with information as it becomes available.
