I’m Gailen, Vote Me!
I have just announced that I will be running for a position with the APFA, which is the union which represents the flight attendants at American Airlines. Why you ask? Well, my dream of creating a commercial aviation museum in Miami is becoming a reality and I’ve completed putting together the first exhibit. I’m now confident that I can easily handle a return to flying along with keeping American Airlines in check with my first union position.
My plan is to run for the MIA Base Vice Chair position and my running mate is James Gillard. The election takes place in February 2013 and then my arbitration date regarding my return to American Airlines is set for mid-April. If all goes as planned, I will be flying for American again within months and holding a union position which will allow me to stand up for workers at American Airlines who’ve been working in a very difficult environment– more on my platform soon!
Many people ask me why I would return to flying. The main reason is the people I work with followed by amazing material for my blog and videos!
