    Advice to Management

    IOE training could be improved by adding a standard curriculum that is followed by each instructor, written by professional educators with flight attendant experience.

    Pros

    Easy to hold a line quickly. Good bases but zero support from Base Administrators when blatant sexual misconduct is reported at IAH.

    Cons

    There is a pattern of sexual harassment of new Flight Attendants at IAH. When reported ... Management does nothing to address it or stop it. Instead, they retaliate against the female victims.

    Advice to Management

    Investigate claims of sexual battery brought to your attention. Protecting the accused is not only morally reprehensible it is also illegal.
