Meet Your Negotiators

Lexie Massey

QX FA Negotiator

Lexie first got involved with AFA in 2006 as an alternate member of the Negotiation Committee. At the time, Lexie was a new Flight Attendant but felt strongly that the Reserve sections of our contract needed drastic improvement and helped achieve a number of significant enhancements. Since then, Lexie has been involved in negotiations for four Tentative Agreements. After stepping back during the most recent contract negotiations, she is ready to return to the table again and fight for the pay, benefits, and work rules that our Flight Attendants deserve. As a former MEC President, she has extensive knowledge of our Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) as well as a strong background in scheduling related issues. Lexie also serves as an AFA member of the Joint PBS Committee. Currently based in Seattle, she flew out of Portland for seven years and Spokane for three. Lexie lives in Tacoma, WA with her husband and their one-year-old mini poodle-mix Dax and enjoys gardening, camping, and working on many DIY projects around their home.
