What Should We Do About The Hotel Change in Oakland San Francisco Dear Member, What Should We Do About The Hotel Change in Oakland San Francisco Your dissatisfaction and safety concerns about our accommodation in Oakland San Francisco is well noted. Members who have stayed in this new hotel in Oakland have actively shared with us their bad experience and raised their concerns on the continuation of being accommodated there. We all understand the importance of this issue. Therefore, besides writing to us, we do strongly encourage you to raise it through the link "My Crew Cares" on IntraCX and directly send an email to Mr. Donald Morris (Crew Services Manager) at email@example.com. Your voice matters ! Remain silent = Acceptance ! FAU ExCo Yours in SOLIDARITY
Regarding Time to Win strategy meeting In response to your enquiry about team office's invitation for the Time to win strategy meeting, your ExCo has confirmed with ISD Management that it is not a Mandatory meeting.

Change of Hotel Accommodation in SFO Dear Members, FAU is shocked and disappointed with the change of hotel accommodation in SFO, even though it meant to be temporary, yet FAU find it "Absolutely Inappropriate". Your ExCo had conducted SFO hotel visit in June, we found that both the 2 shortlisted hotels suggested by API are not ideal. Particularly the Oakland Marriott in which your ExCo has explicitly pointed out our great concerns on safety and raised our strong objection in considering this hotel as an alternative. Homeless around the hotel can be easily spotted and photos were taken and sent with the report for the reference of ISD and API. The severe problems of high crime rate in the area and the use of underground in Oakland area which is not recommended by locals has been clearly identified in our report to ISD and API as well. Therefore, your ExCo are disconcerted with the arrangement made and will continue to urge ISD to immediately review the decision. Members' Safety is our No.1 priority.

Extension of Retirement Age For FAU Members ONLY In order to devote a significant Recognition towards the genuine support and defend the benefits of our Members, FAU reiterates our stance to ISD and has demanded the option for the Extension Contract to be offered to FAU Members Only. As a matter of fact, FAU is not a single entity but representing the stance and positions of our Members as a whole. Without the presence and support from all of you, there is no way we can form such a powerful Labour Union in Hong Kong. Therefore, we shall safeguard the principle of a Fair Representation for our Members solely and we would regard this demand as a legitimate and righteous act which helps to maintain a general Integrity and Fairness. Even though the discussions on Extension of Retirement Age is a long and time-consuming process, FAU has been trying hard in bargaining with the Company for the best outcome. Therefore, we encourage our Members to rely on our updates and to avoid any piece of untrue or misleading information being passed around in the Community. Members who have stay tuned and read through our recent email shall be able to understand that those rumours are kind of malicious sayings and unfounded misunderstandings. Hereby, we would like to thank our Members for the committed trust and faith on the movement by far. FAU ExCo
Quick Updates on recent bi-monthly meetings with ISD. Reduction of the RA2 (CX City standby) From the first introduction of RA2, FAU already raised out that after the transition period of standby called out time change from 90 minutes to 135 minutes, the number of crew on RA2 shall be reviewed. After a few rounds of discussion, ISD agreed to reduce the total number of crew on RA2 from 20 to 10 in May. It was further reduced to 6 in July. Your ExCo will continue to discuss the effectiveness of RA2 and hopefully there will not be any more RA2 standby in a few months time, as R15 or R16 will be sufficient to cover last minute call out. As for the R14 standby, ISD will need more data before they can review the time slot. Laundry - Uniform are being stained by oil or decolouring from the hanger. ISD has confirmed with FAU that the material of the hanger has been changed, therefore there shall not be anymore decolouring. There will also be a non-woven bag covering the uniform during transportation in order to prevent the uniform from being stained by the machine oil. Payment of MedAire network discount fee Recently your ExCo has received enquiry that one of our Members has to pay the MedAire network discount fee after consulting the doctor at outport. After clarification with ISD, the payment has been refunded to the concerned crew and ISD confirmed that the fee shall be paid by the Company. If any Member has encounter similar situation, please feel free to contact your Union. Simplifying JCL service on TPE-NRT-TPE In March meeting, your ExCo has brought up the issue of TPE-NRT-TPE sectors with short flight time and a full main meal service being served in JCL. As we all know that the flight time varies during different seasons, especially for winter schedule, TPE-NRT could be less than 2 hours 30 minutes, while NRT-TPE could be over 4 hours. However, the service provided on both sectors are identical. For those who have flown on these sectors recently, you would have noticed that there is a recent change in the JCL service, FAU welcome this change and we will keep pursuing for a more reasonable service in YCL.
Thank you for all your support and participation on the mailbox survey. Finally, ISD has confirmed to keep our mailboxes. We appreciate ISD in making a positive move in listening to our suggestions and initiated the survey. Our voices are being heard now. Thanks again to those Members who had promptly expressed their objections on the removal of mailboxes which allowed your ExCo to make the most appropriate suggestion to ISD and led ISD to reconsider keeping our mailboxes. Your active participation and Unity can make a difference.
