After much discussion by the Local Officers, the shift bid has been adjusted to align better with the Shuttle. It was very troubling that Management reniged on their committment to write the bid with the alignment in place. Hopefully, next bid they will get it right - 3rd time's the charm .
Please read the following message from Gary Peterson and the attached Association Update regarding negotiations. I will be attending the upcoming "face to face" meeting in January here in San Francisco, will have more information after those meetings.
The Company believes that there are "missing" Ramp equipment items.......if you have equipment that is "checked out", please return it to the ROC by 0900 on Friday, December 14th. If the "missing" items don't get returned by the 14th, the Company will conduct a Locker Search on Saturday, December 15th. Mr.
I would like to thank all the Crew Chiefs that participated in the Company held CC Meeting on November 28th. Your comments and concerns were well voiced, relevant, and presented to the group tactfully. I appreciate you taking the time to face off with the new Ramp Manager and call him out on important issues.
