Council 64 Update – Nov. 15, 2013

INSIDE THIS UPDATE:

  • O.N.E. “Feedback” Forms
  • LAX Local Council Meeting: Dec. 17, 2013

O.N.E. “Feedback” Forms

At our last Council 64 Joint LAX meeting it was brought to my attention that certain bases have been soliciting member input with the use of a ONE program “submission” form. After some review I’ve verified with our ONE liaison that this form’s intended purpose was not as a Contract Proposal Submission Form, but instead specifically for ONE volunteers.

Council 64 views this as totally out of line and a “de-facto” Contract Proposal Initiative. An initiative that places the interest of our members at a supreme disadvantage with regards to input and participation. We are demanding an immediate end to the practice pending direction to all MEC’s within United. If this practice does not cease IMMEDIATELY Council 64 will begin disseminating the same form as of the 20th of November.

We will demand a clear and thorough investigation into the whereabouts of the forms already submitted AND inquire as to what weight if any such forms have been given in our Joint Negotiations. Further we will insist they be disregarded or held aside pending an equal participation of all three MEC’s and all Locals at United Airlines.

We will accept nothing less than a measured and balanced approach to our Negotiation Process be that between our Union and the Company or between our respective MECs

LAX Local Council Meeting: Dec. 17, 2013

Please make plans to attend our next formal Council 64 Local Meeting in LAX on December 17th. The meeting will be held at 1:00PM local time at the Hacienda Hotel 525 N. Sepulveda Blvd. El Segundo, CA 90245. Our Council Meetings are a great opportunity to let us know exactly what you expect and for you to know what’s happening in your Union today.

In Solidarity,

Manny Mireles
President, AFA-CWA LEC 64
