Above, please find a prepared Notice of Consent and Retainer Agreement for individual FAM participation in the FLSA class action suit.
In an earlier communication, we advised that non-AMA members would be eligible to join this collective action suit, but may be required to pay their own way. I am pleased to announce that the AMA has discussed our options with MPP Law and we have elected to cover all fees for all FAMs regardless of union membership as this suit is intended to correct pay issues for flying FAMs across the board.
AMA MEMBERS MUST FILL OUT THESE FORMS AND SEND THEM TO THE FIRM - AMA MEMBERSHIP DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY MAKE YOU PART OF THIS LAWSUIT.
Court rules require that any eligible FAM who wishes to participate in this suit must sign and return the Consent and Retainer to the firm office for ultimate filing with the Court. The Consents are filed under court seal to maintain the anonymity of participants. Any FAM who wishes to join the action needs to sign the documents in the indicated spaces, email the documents to the dedicated lawsuit email address (FamLawsuit@mpplaw.com) and mail hard copies with original signatures to the firm’s Las Vegas office address:
Nicholas M Wieczorek
Morris Polich & Purdy LLP
3800 Howard Hughes Pkwy
Las Vegas, Nevada 89169
MPP Law will create a service list of participating FAMs and communicate about case issues through the case email. AMA members are encouraged to forward the attached documents to any FAMs who are not part of AMA since participation is open to all eligible FAMs regardless of union affiliation. All identifying information for any FAM will be held in strict confidence and maintained in accord with established TSA procedures.
MPP Law will then communicate directly with participating FAMs through the dedicated email address. We encourage you to sign, email and postal mail the attached forms as soon as possible.
Thank you for your AMA membership, and please direct any non-members to visit www.airmarshal.org for more information.
