SAFETY: Company and Union UNITED

Our egom, policies and procedures dictate that we work by the rules and SAFELY. This is Company policy not a work slow down. The problem is that members of the management team have conditioned the new hires especially to break rules and bypass safety procedures to get planes out by running from plane to plane endangering themselves, coworkers, passengers and property.   WORK ONE PLANE AT A TIME

In Solidarity,

On another front, our team still has a chance to meet or exceed the two most important goals for our business: protecting our employees and the aircraft we handle. For most of this year we performed well against our goals, but since the end of summer we have experienced an increased number of employee injuries and aircraft ground damages. This creates personal pain for individual team members and threatens job security for us all when we fail to meet these critical goals as a ground handler for American Airlines.

As we work through this holiday travel season, you can help us reverse this trend and end the year strong by:
* Being at work as scheduled to help fellow employees serve our customers
* Maintaining situational awareness while working and encouraging team members to do the same to protect one another from accidents or injuries
* Choosing to know and comply with the safety procedures applicable to your job
* Proactively participating in Safety Briefings to encourage a culture of compliance at Piedmont
* Never performing a task you’re not trained for and S.T.O.P. if there is any doubt about SAFETY

Please know the work you do to safely serve our customers and handle flights for American Airlines is appreciated. Thank you again for helping us maintain a safety compliant workplace that protects employees and customers every day.
