We are so excited to have wrapped our first dues / membership signup, which closed on May 19 at midnight PST. After our first month, we have over 5,000 submissions completed!

Since ratification of the CBA 5 months ago, IFCs have gone from no real way to challenge the Company, to building up a powerful grievance process.
77 contract grievances have been filed – These include many group grievances affecting multiple IFCs, and some that affect all like Late Reserve and Critical Coverage.
