  • TA is ratified
  • Implementation Schedule
  • Vacancy/Displacement Bid
  • MEC Meeting on October 14 at ALPA BOD

With a ratified TA, much work remains to be completed. Establishing the Joint Implementation Committee as well as working out effective dates for several tenets of the TA are just a few items that are being worked on.

 
   
 
 
   
     

From The Chairman

 
     

Fellow American Eagle Pilots:

Following Monday’s announcement that the tentative agreement had been ratified, we began working with management on finalizing implementation.  The immediate priorities are to obtain approval of the new agreement from the bankruptcy court, format the contract changes into the final print version, work with management on a final implementation timeline, and establish the Joint Implementation Committee.

We expect to have the implementation timeline towards the end of October and will publish it as soon as it becomes available. In the meantime, please continue to reference the language contained in your ALPA pilot contract.


On another front, management began processing the current vacancy / displacement bid award on Friday morning.  This award is currently scheduled to be completed on Tuesday and the preliminary award should be posted that afternoon or the following day.  This bid award includes the displacement of all LAX EMB and all MIA ATR pilots.  Because of the magnitude of this award, please double check the posted award regardless of whether you specifically entered a vacancy or displacement bid.

With reference to MIA, the last flight for the ATR in MIA will occur on November 15th.  Management has informed us that they intend to use partial-month TDY to SJU for a number of displaced MIA ATR pilots.  In addition, the company will offer a number of TDY options from MIA to SJU ATR each month, beginning in December and ending in March.  If there are an insufficient number of volunteers, then management will involuntarily TDY.

With reference to LAX, the LAX EMB-140 fleet will be relocated to other Eagle domiciles on November 14th.  November hard lines have just been completed and contain regular LAX flying from November 1st through the 14th.For the flying that occurs from the 15th through the 30th, all LAX sequences will begin and end with a deadhead.  LAX reserve pilots will be sent on a partial month TDY during that period.

We are still waiting on final decisions from management about December, but it appears that all displaced LAX pilots who were awarded the EMB in a different domicile will have that displacement effective beginning with the December schedule.  LAX pilots who require training for their ‘displaced to’ equipment will be TDY’d to another EMB status until their training begins.  Management has also informed us that they intend to TDY LAX pilots to the domicile to which they are displacing, with the exception of SJU ATR.

This Sunday, the MEC will convene for its regularly scheduled meeting just prior to the beginning of ALPA’s Board of Directors meeting.  The agenda of this MEC meeting is on the EGL-ALPA website and includes direction from the MEC on AQP and assistance to low-time first officers in obtaining the minimum requirements for the ATP license.

 

Fraternally,

 

Tony Gutierrez

MEC Chairman
