American Airlines flight attendants union president Laura Glading will step down sooner than she originally expected.

Glading, who submitted her resignation to the union board on Saturday, had planned to resign effective December 2. However, after the union board meeting on Monday, the effective date was moved to this Friday.

“After discussions with the APFA Board of Directors, I have concluded that it will be in the best interest of APFA and our members to have the transition from my presidency begin sooner than I had originally planned,” Glading said in a note sent to members on Monday.

Glading was facing a possible recall election even though her term expired in a few months.
