Frontier Elects New Chair for MEC

Union News Continues Unabated This Week

The voting members of the Frontier Airlines branch of the Air Line Pilots Association, International have elected a new chair to head up their Master Executive Council.

The team will represent the carrier's 2,000-plus pilot base after the previous MEC chair, Tracy Smith, steps down. The newly elected Captain Michael Maynard will act as the new chair to fulfill the rest of Smith's term apart from February 1st. Captains Dan Reitzig and Dosh Hirao will remain in place in their roles as the Master Executive Council's vice chair and secretary-treasurer, respectively.

"Captain Maynard has a long history of union service," said the ALPA's statement regarding the election. "An Atlanta-based captain, he currently chairs the MEC Scheduling Committee and has previously been elected as MEC vice chair and secretary-treasurer. He has also been a Milwaukee domicile vice chair, Chicago domicile chair, and secretary-treasurer of the Board of Directors of the Frontier Airline Pilots Association, the independent union that merged with ALPA in June 2016. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse, Capt. Maynard worked for Great Lakes Airlines before joining Frontier in 2007. He lives in Peachtree City, Ga., with his wife (who is also a Frontier captain) and two daughters."
