A. AFA-CWA public relations should advance:
1. The interests of flight attendants as safety professionals and as one of the essential legs of the airline safety triangle with pilots and maintenance personnel.
2. The role and responsibility of flight attendants as specifically dedicated to passenger safety concerns in the cabin.
3. The importance and equity of fair rates of pay, rules and working conditions established through the collective bargaining process.
4. AFA-CWA as a national organization.
B. Public relations plays a vital role in AFA-CWA's efforts by providing the focal point for liaison with the community as well as a key link in the Union's two-way communications with the membership.
C. Any inquiries from local offices of national news media or questions on topics relating to overall AFA-CWA policy should be referred to the International President's department at the International Office. Local Executive Council generated news stories or responses to local press inquiries should, of course, first be "cleared" with your Master Executive Council and, in cases involving a non-local subject, with the International President's office.
