The System Boards role is to Represent Compass Flight Attendants during the arbitrations hearing and resulting deliberations, interface with the AFA Compass Grievance Chair and the cases Committee Advocate, work directly with AFA Legal Counsel, the Arbitrator and the opposing System Board member who represents the company.
Why Would I Contact the System Board Committee?
You will have no need to contact this 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.
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.
