Last Friday all of us received a video message from our CEO Maury Gallagher telling us how much he values, supports and appreciates us. He also took a moment to apologize for the comments he's made regarding our choice to have a career as a Flight Attendant at Allegiant. While we were admittedly pleasantly surprised at the message and thought it was admirable, we're a bit skeptical of the timing and motivation behind its release.

Today, the National Mediation Board sent us a notice stating that due to travel issues for the Mediator, our session in Tampa Bay, Florida was canceled.  At the time the message was conveyed, we were in an informational meeting in PIE.  

 

Immediately after the meeting, since we were all still in the Tampa area and had meeting rooms available, we contracted Tracy Tulle and requested that we follow through with our scheduled meetings without the Mediator, or with the Mediator on a conference call. Although Tracy and the Management Negotiating Committee were at the airport, they refused our request and flew home.
