On 7/12/11 Sam Risoli sent a letter to each UA FA via Skynet webmail saying CAL will begin hiring and the Cross-Over Program is NOT going to happen. He also stated that UAL will be 1800 flight attendants over-staffed. AFA's inability to have a honest, non-biased survey and to be able to negotiate with the company may very well lead to a furlough.

The focus of this petition has now changed to expressing our anger that AFA has made this decison for us.

We, the undersigned, take issue with the fact that the Cross-Over Program was not put to a membership vote. We demand that AFA guarantee that no furloughs will result from this action, and if they do, MEC president, Greg Davidowitch will resign.
