What Does the Grievance Administration Committee Do?
The Grievance Administration Committee is an internal committee whose purpose is to support Grievance Committee Advocates, the Grievance Chairperson(s) and the AFA International legal team. This is accomplished by tracking and documenting any disciplines, contract violations, notifications, notes and issues that result when Compass flight attendants face discipline or when contract violations occur. Record keeping and archiving is performed from the earliest stages of discipline and contract issues up until the completion of the arbitration process.
Why Would I Contact the Grievance Administration Committee?
You should have no need to contact this committee. AFA Grievance representatives are your first point of contact if you are facing a discipline situation or feel that there has been a contract violation.
Who Do I Contact for Assistance on the Grievance Committee?
AFA Grievance reps are your first point of contact if you are facing a discipline situation or feel that there has been a contract violation. In either case the contract specifies specific time periods that a grievance can be filed.
Non probationary flight attendants can be represented by an AFA grievance rep during an investigation meeting with the company. They also have the right to have a witness attend if a grievance rep is not available.
Remember: A grievance rep does not have to be a member of your Council or be based in your domicile in order to assist you. Many of our Compass grievance reps participate in investigatory meetings by phone.
