Trans States Neg. UPDATE 6/23/14
Posted On: Jun 23, 2014

June 23th, 2014

 

Dear Flight Attendants,

As you are aware we have been meeting to discuss the contract with management.  We have TA (temporary agreement) on many sections of the contract.  We are currently working on two of the hardest sections of the contract, scheduling and compensation.  There are many rumors going around, i.e. no cancellation pay, we are going on strike etc… AGAIN THESE ARE RUMORS.  

I am asking for your assistance on the following items,

1.
Please keep a log of your cancelled flights.  On the Samsung is a Polaris Office program.  I am using the excel spread sheet to keep a record of the date the flight was cancelled, the flight number, reason for cancellation and the time lost from the cancellation.  If possible please send this information to me at the end of each month.   
2.
Screen shot, or copy and paste when a trip is being denied, due to being less than 60 block hours.  In flica you will notice 60 block hours and a credit of 75 hours for example.  Especially during the months of vacation, training, sick, etc.  Send that information as it occurs.
3.
Forward to me when crew scheduling calls you between the hours of 2200 and 0600.  The date, time and reason of the call.  

Know your contract.  Carry your contract with you.  Your contract can be found in two places on the Samsung or on the teamster’s website.  www.teamsterslocal 618.org.

.
Section 4  B-2.  The company recognizes the need that we as flight attendants require nutrition.  (Speak with your crew about taking a meal break in a hub, not at an outstation.  Get off the plane, take a short break, get your food and eat.  I am not saying take an hour break, but a short break)
.
Section 7   B-2.  A schedule duty day shall not exceed fourteen (14) hours and a flight attendant shall not be required to remain on duty to complete a duty period more than sixteen (16) hours.  (Note key word, schedule. Weather and maintenance is not included in the 14 hours.  But if crew scheduling calls you ahead of time to schedule more flying, keep in mind this section.
.
Section 7 D-4.  Following a reduced rest overnight the next day flying shall be limited to twelve (12) hours which in actualoperation may be extended to fourteen (14) hours at the flight attendant option.

Just reminders, never refuse flying, contact your manager and then file a report with your shop steward.  When you call in sick, per the GOM you must call crew scheduling and your manager.  You have the right to have union representation any time you have a meeting with in-flight.  

For the time being I will be handling both IAD and ORD union issues.  When we are done with negotiations, we will be looking for a shop steward for the IAD Base.

 

Fly Safe,

 

Opal A. Combs

  • The IBT and your Atlanta Committee members, Geoff Maloney and Chris Rogers have been negotiating with Company management since 2010; almost as long as the IBT have been negotiating for the Express Jet CRJ members. 

    The Company has now given us their final, closeout proposal on wages. Neither the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Airline Division, the Business Agents of Local 210 and Local 19, nor your rank-and-file committee members are recommending this be ratified. A detailed letter from your ExpressJet CRJ Negotiating Committee can be found here. A copy of the company’s last, best and final offer can be found here.

    Ballots were mailed on Tuesday, June 20, 2017.  Each member will receive voting instructions and credentials required for voting.  Voting will close on Monday, July 10, and will be counted the same day. 

  • The ‘Let’s Get America Working!’ campaign seeks to restore a dynamic and prosperous middle class to drive economic growth by helping to advance policy decisions that create and maintain good middle-income jobs, guarantee retirement security, expand access to the American Dream, and ensure that the benefits of the ongoing economic recovery are felt by the many, not just the few.

  • We Are eXPOsing XPO’s Global Greed

    XPO Logistics is a top ten global logistics and transportation company with annual revenue of $15 billion and 89,000 employees, another 10,000 workers classified as independent contractors, and thousands more working for firms that subcontract with XPO. We are the REAL workers at XPO Logistics worldwide exposing the truth about the company’s global greed, illegal wage theft, unsafe conditions, and abhorrent and vicious anti-worker, anti-union tactics. 

    This greed includes mistreating former Con-way Freight workers in the United States who are being kept in the dark about terminal closures and layoffs, and the company’s illegal refusal to bargain contracts and denying their workers’ federally protected right to organize. It also includes port, rail and last-mile drivers around the country and in Southern California fighting wage theft in excess of $200 million because they are misclassified as independent contractors and denied the right to form their union. This greed has caused numerous lawsuits and strikes.  Greed also means an unsafe workplace and mistreating its warehouse employees.

    XPO’s greed extends to Europe beginning with breaking its promise to not layoff any workers for at least 18 months. French workers and the unions have been fighting back against XPO’s disrespect, lies and attempts to slash jobs. Similar struggles are taking place in Great Britain, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, and across Europe.

    Join the worldwide struggle now! Get involved with this campaign by joining the Facebook group “XPO Exposed.”

    Together, we can eXPOse the company’s global greed and win fairness, respect and dignity for tens of thousands of XPO employees around the world!

  • This webpage provides information on the Teamsters Union’s legislative advocacy at both the federal and state level as well as our field activity to support those policy positions and to get strong labor candidates elected to office.  Among other resources, you will find our federal legislative scorecard, formal statements of policy position and communications to Capitol Hill,  a weekly update on federal legislative happenings, an overview of bills we are tracking at the state level, and quick links to take action on priority issues.

  • Negotiations for the National Master Automobile Transporters Agreement (NMATA) recently concluded and a tentative agreement has been reached. On Thursday, Feb. 16, 2017 representatives from carhaul local unions met in Detroit to endorse the National Agreement and the Central-Southern Supplement, paving the way for members to vote. The Eastern and Western Supplements were approved in 2016, and will not be re-voted. However, all carhaul members will get to exercise their right to vote on the National Agreement and General Monetary Changes.

    Ballots will be mailed out on or about March 10 and are tentatively scheduled to be counted on March 30.

    The tentative agreement is from September 1, 2015, until May 31, 2021.

  • Workers’ pensions are being endangered by both Congress and those charged with overseeing them. The Teamsters and our members are standing united to say “No!” to cuts and “Yes!” to greater retirement security!

  • On Wednesday, April 5, 2017, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and Southwest Airlines reached an agreement covering more than 300 material specialists. Details of the agreement are available on this webpage, along with materials explaining the components of this contract.

    Ballots will be mailed on or about Wednesday, May 31, 2017. Each member will receive voting instructions and credentials required for voting via mail, along with paper copies of the tentative agreement’s highlights, the tentative agreement, and a copy of the seniority list. Voting will close on June 21, ballots will begin to be counted the same day.  Please continue to check this page for more information, it will be posted as soon as it becomes available.

  • The Teamsters Union represents more than 250,000 members at UPS and UPS Freight. UPS remains an active member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) despite the organization’s anti-worker and anti-union agenda that seeks to undermine and weaken worker protections.

  • This web page provides information on our fight against fast-track legislation. The measure requires Congress to take only a quick up-or-down vote on secret trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership and does not allow such agreements to be amended. It limits Congress’ constitutionally mandated oversight of such trade deals and lets others decide what’s best for America. The result is fewer good-paying U.S. jobs and unsafe food and products for Americans. Read more to find out why fast track is the wrong track for Teamsters and America.

  • Workers across the country at FedEx Freight and Con-way Freight are standing shoulder to shoulder to form their unions with the Teamsters to win a more secure future. Momentum is building with a first wave of victories with many more to come.

    There is growing worker resentment toward the companies after years of being treated unfairly. While the companies have suddenly made improvements since workers began to organize, workers know that without a legally binding contract the company can take these things away at any time.

    The unfulfilled promises that have been made to drivers and dockworkers over the past decade are coming back to haunt management.

    But now workers are taking action and standing up for themselves by forming their union. It's a different era now. It's Teamster Time! LIKE our Facebook page, here.
