Special Jetwire: An update on the Payroll Support Program for our Team In a letter to team members today, CEO Doug Parker provided an update on the Payroll Support Program.
Dear Colleagues, You are all well aware that tomorrow, Oct. 1, the Payroll Support Program (PSP) under the CARES Act is set to expire. Despite enormous bipartisan support for an extension of the PSP, our elected officials have not been able to reach agreement on a COVID-19 relief package that would enable this extension. As a result, tomorrow, we will begin the difficult process of furloughing 19,000 of our hardworking and dedicated colleagues. I spoke late today with the Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin. He informed me that the White House and Speaker Nancy Pelosi are continuing to negotiate on a bipartisan COVID-19 relief package that would include an extension of the PSP and it is possible they could reach an agreement in the coming days. There are also efforts in both the Senate and the House of Representatives to pass a standalone PSP extension if the broader relief package does not proceed. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that any of these efforts will come to fruition. However, in an effort to encourage cooperation and keep hope alive for our team, I informed the Secretary that if these efforts to extend PSP are successful over the next few days, we will reverse our furlough processes and recall any impacted team members. I am extremely sorry we have reached this outcome. It is not what you all deserve. It is a privilege to advocate on behalf of the hardworking aviation professionals at American and throughout the industry, and you have my assurance that we will continue to do so in the days ahead. Please keep contacting your elected officials about the importance of reaching an agreement that will extend PSP. We are not done fighting.

The Locals Officers told the company that they can not agree to wavie the bid timeline and violate the contract. The decision would  have to be decided by the majority of agents in CLT.  Officers advised company that  to inform the CLT agents of what is going on with the delayed flight schedule and poll the agents to see if they would agree to waive the bid time line. The local officers can not waive bid time lines with out the permission of the majority of agents in CLT agreeing to do it.

A note from Eric
August 19, 2020 4:15pm EST | Piedmont News | Department: Corp Comm
Posted By: Hannah Walden
Piedmont team members,
Later this week, Piedmont will offer another round of Voluntary Leave of Absence (VLOA) to some of our frontline and MSS team members. Watching another round of coworkers leave the operation is not where we wanted to be heading into fall, but until customers return in greater numbers, we must do everything we can to match the size of our workforce to the work available. The good news (if there is good news), is that many of our departments and locations are properly staffed for now. Leaves will be offered in PHL and CLT and a handful of stations. More details on the VLOA to come.
As our parent company makes decisions on flight schedules, fleets, routes and hub structures for 2021 and beyond, every regional carrier in the American Airlines portfolio is competing for the privilege of flying customers in and out of the hubs. Piedmont’s low operating costs and excellent performance record keep us in the consideration set for future opportunities, but every on the job injury, aircraft or equipment damage and customer complaint sets us back a step. It will take our best people doing their best work to continue to earn opportunities with American.
If you choose to stay with us over the next few months, thank you for taking on the difficult work to come. We will be under scrutiny for safety compliance, performance, turn cleaning, and every customer interaction. Consistent compliance is so important right now and in particular, health and safety related compliance – is non-negotiable. Our customers are demanding face coverings, clean airplanes, social distancing and excellent service. Never has it been more important to SAFELY perform our work.
For the remainder of the year, we must run the most efficient airline and ground handling operation we have ever run. Our fall schedule, based on what we know right now, is not efficient and it will take creative, engaged leadership to keep cost low and performance high across the operation. We must care for our team members and our customers better than we’ve ever done. That includes a lot of preparation to make sure we don’t spread the virus. We must realign our resources, work together to cut costs, and make tough decisions about our priorities going forward. This Piedmont team has demonstrated determination and resilience when faced with challenges in the past and I am confident that together, we will do so again.
Every challenge brings opportunity and I look forward to working with you to ensure Piedmont comes out of this pandemic a stronger, more valuable company than before.

ATT: Local 3645 Members in CLT
The union has been having an ongoing conversation with the company for weeks about how to better protect our agents by having temperatures taken at the turnstile . Progress has finally been made and the company has finally seen the point we have been arguing weeks. Temperature taking will start this week. The training for those individuals that will be taking agents temperatures has just begun. The Union leadership and company leadership will have its final discussion to formalize the details of this new procedures in the next 24 hours.
#UNIONSTRONG were fighting 24/7 365.

Thank You

To: CWA Local 3645 Members

The last 7 or 8 weeks have been really busy for our Local officers, Executive Board and stewards in the 22 stations that we serve.  There have been many additional task and issues that our Union volunteers have had to address in an effort to ensure the safety of our members in all of our stations. This includes making sure all stations are following the CDC guidelines as it relates to protecting our members from covid19.  This required many meetings both person and virtual. In addition to countless phone calls and emails. There will always be a level of resistance at some stations to following procedures, protocol and contract adherence but our Union volunteers are steadfast and stand united in ensuring that our working environments are safe.

Our Union volunteers had to deal with the ever-evolving flight cancellations that have disrupted operations in all of our 22 stations.  Additionally our union volunteers  have had to overseeing the emergency bidding process in all our stations to ensure that the emergency bidding is being done equitably and adhering to the requirement of the contract as it relates to minimum and maximum hours outlined in our Collective Bargaining Agreement (CONTRACT). It has definitely been a challenge for our Union team.

Local 3645 officers, Executive Board members and Stewards are still making sure the day to day activities of the union are still continuing as normal in the mist of everything else going on. This includes but is not limited to

 -Stewart representation

-Grievance process for terminations and all forms of discipline.

-Grievance process for contract violations.

-System board hearings for terminations and all forms of discipline.

-System board hearing for contract violations.  

Additionally, Our union volunteers are always working behind the scenes 24/7 to resolve every day work place condition and safety issues and concerns. As well as addressing work place conflicts before they escalate. They are also ensuring that local, state and national workers’ rights are being protected. Almost all of the 22 stations that are in our local are in right to work states. Which means this is a challenging task when dealing with company management. Remember the Airline industry is just one of a few industries that are unionized in right to work states.

Most of our volunteer union personnel have other jobs, careers and businesses and family obligations but still step up to make sure all their union members are being protected because they are steadfast believers in workers rights and believe in the labor movement.  90% of what our Union volunteer team does is behind the scenes. It is very often a thankless job.

I want to take this time to personally thank all of our volunteer Union personnel for all that they do.

Thank you

HAZARD PAY

To: Local 3645 Members
Re: Hazard Pay
Good afternoon Union brothers and sister. I hope everyone is safe and healthy. The union has been having multiple conversations with the company about getting hazard pay for our agents. The company said they can not pay agents hazard pay at this time.
Please consider these very important factors about the airline industry
    1. Its having major financial issues due to passengers not flying and are not making any money.
    2. Companies are asking for agent to retire early to save money.
  • Multiple airlines are asking people to VTO to save money.
  • The whole industry just got a government bailout to pay workers salary.
  • Gate agents are boarding flights with 5, 6 and 7 passengers.
  • Ramp are loading flights with 3 bags.
  • It maybe months before the airline industry will recover.
  • Lay offs/furloughs maybe imminent for the airline industry this coming fall.
These are unprecedented times for us all and the Unions concentration is keeping our members employed and ensuring they can put food on the table.
In Solidarity, CWA Local 3645 Leadership Team
