PSA Crewmember Reliability Program.
#Disclaimer: The following information is for informational purposes only. It is not the position of the Union of agreeing to the policy, but rather to answer questions and concerns many of you have. Another conference call will take place tomorrow between the Company and the Unions, and after that call we will put out an Eline.
Corrective Action- If you were on a level of disciplinary action prior to today, you will drop back one level of discipline action at the lowest level.
If you were on a FWW (Final) you will drop back to 6 points under the WW level.
If you were on a WW(written), you will drop back to 4.5 point under the verbal.
If you were on a VW (Verbal) you will drop back to zero “0” with no action.
Anyone that notices a discrepancy from here on out will have 7 days to notify the Company for investigation and corrections if necessary.
Please review the point values under each classification. Note unauthorized commutes and No shows will carry a hefty penalty.
Improvement Deductions- If an employee works one quarter without any accountable absences, they will gain 1 point. Points however will never drop below zero.
Access to your tracker can be found on the new employee website.
That is really all I can put out until after the Conference call tomorrow. I think that answers the big question of where everyone was starting out under the corrective action part. If you believe that your corrective action plan is inaccurate, please let Lee, Diane, or Terri know. (Privately)
Union News This Week
Today the officers and the communication chair (Julie Mosteller) conducted a conference call and looked over the finished product of the AFA website. Everything looked great and Julie has done a fabulous job. She just needs to put a few edits to finalize it which she hopes to accomplish over the weekend. The next step will be letting our International Communications person look over it. Once he does that, it will simply be a matter of transferring it to the server. The time it will take will be based upon his availability, but hopefully it will be ready to launch in the next couple weeks. A special thank you to Julie for devoting so much time to this project.
Another conference call took place with the Company regarding the new attendance policy. As of now the Company still plans to launch on February 7th. I still see flaws in the program, which I conveyed today to the Company. They said they will be sending an email to employees clarifying a few points that we brought up.
Once they send the email, I will address any questions you may have. However, we will still continue to bring to the Company’s attention improvements we feel need made to the program.
Another internal conference call was conducted today concerning uniform reactions with the officers, the air health and safety committee, and other members. We hope to have some solid concrete information to publicly put out to you next week. In the meantime, if you are having a reaction and have not yet addressed it, please contact Megan Hughes directly for instructions.
Finally, Negotiations kicked off this week in Dayton. It was a good start and things went well. Communications regarding negotiations will be coming soon.
As always, a special thank you to our committee chairs and committee reps. You and the work you do is what makes our union whole, and the work you all do every day is greatly valued.
I hope everyone has a great weekend and fly safe.
