Jan. 8, 2016 // This Week’s Notebook: AFN Election Runoff Entering Final Week and Much More!

AFN electionWe are just a week away from knowing if NATCA has won the support of the more than 1,200 bargaining unit members in the new AFN (FAA Office of Finance and Management) group who are deciding on their union representative in a runoff election.

The runoff against the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees is needed because NATCA, while earning more votes in the initial election by a wide margin, fell just short of the 50 percent plus one total needed to win outright.

All ballots must be mailed in time to arrive at the San Francisco office of the Federal Labor Relations Authority by Jan. 13. Ballots will be counted on Jan. 14.


We will announce the results of the runoff election in the Jan. 15 (next week’s!) NATCA Insider.

Cambridge Corner: Rely on Reason

Making decisions in haste or based on emotion can result in investment moves you may later regret. Review your original reasons for buying an investment and compare performance with an appropriate benchmark index before you sever ties. If returns have been poor over several years, consider replacing the investment with a similar one that’s a better performer.
