Dear AMFA Member:
On August 22, 2019, the National Mediation Board (NMB) certified the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association (AMFA) as the collective bargaining agent for the mechanic and related class and craft at Horizon Air. On behalf of the Officers and Representatives of the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association, I would like to welcome you to the Association.
Attached are new member resources and forms we hope will answer some of your questions as new, or returning, AMFA Members. All AMFA-Horizon Air members have been assigned to Local 14 in Seattle, WA. Please visit www.amfa14.org for more information about your Local Officers and Representatives and Local Updates.
We encourage all of our members to register with the AMFA National Website (under “Member Resources”) and to download the new AMFA app to your smartphone or tablet. Doing so will ensure that you receive the most up-to-date news from the Association. In addition, you will have access to AMFA news, publications, negotiation updates, and links to National Officers, AMFA Locals, and government agencies.
In accordance with the AMFA Constitution, all members are obligated to pay dues; however, AMFA National Policy waives the new member $100.00 initiation fee described in the AMFA Constitution for your group provided you submit a Membership Application and Dues Check-Off Form by October 10, 2019. Please submit the attached Membership Application and Dues Check Off Form to establish member in good standing status with the Association and to begin exercising your membership rights (Union Member Rights Info Sheet is enclosed). Forms may be submitted by mail, scan/email to email@example.com, or fax to (303) 362-7736.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to AMFA National or Local 14 with any concerns or questions during the transition.
