Council 7-London: establishing a Support Group Network

Thank you all for your patience as we worked to set up a Support Group Network to help us in the days, weeks and possibly even months ahead. It’s taken a little longer than expected as we worked out some inaccuracies in the AFA database – so please be aware that not all the email addresses provided will be accurate (or available). Also, we’ve left out Flight Attendant phone numbers because we simply didn’t have the capacity to include this information. If you need a colleague’s phone number, please check their master Schedule on CCS or reach out to Council 7 at afalhr@unitedafa.org.

The Support Group Network structure is broadly along geographic lines – in the UK this means County divisions, with an average group size of around 7. The Support Group Network aim is that no-one should be excluded and everyone should have equal access to support and information – including those who are not on Social Media. Although you may not normally interact with the people in your individual Support Group, please think of the Support Group Network like the Dutch “polder” system where everyone – whether you like them or not – has to work together to insure the integrity of the canals, dykes and windmills so that life in the space we share can go on. In our case the canals represent the flow of information, the windmills the support we provide to one another, and the dykes the institutional structures of the employment relationships that allow us all to earn a living in the shared space of civil aviation.

Put another way, the Support Group Network should encourage the duality between information and questions, and between support and resources; through its structure and functioning. Each group should select one coordinator who is responsible for checking in with every other group member on a weekly basis. With an average group size of 7, seven group coordinators support on average 49 Flight Attendants, who in turn check in with 7 regional coordinators – thus allowing us to support everybody in our Local Council.

When you receive this email, your role will be to communicate with one another, decide who would like to be the group coordinator, and ensure that you set up an effective means of communicating with one another. The group coordinator should then communicate to Council 7 at afalhr@unitedafa.org, and we will next determine who wants to be the regional coordinator in addition to their local role. Also, please let us know immediately if you have inadvertently been placed in the wrong group by sending us your address details!

The first, and most important thing, is to stay in touch with one another. By communicating regularly, we will become aware much sooner that someone may need extra help and support, or something physical such as food or medicine, or emotional support or access to information. While there may be many things that can be handled entirely locally, this is not the expectation. If more support is needed than can be provided locally, the Support Group Network allows us to channel resources collectively. It also facilitates the collation of questions and concerns and so enable us to ask more pertinent questions and share better information.

Your local group is set out below. Please reach out to one another, select a group coordinator and have that person confirm that your group is up and running by replying to afalhr@unitedafa.org.
