On February 12th, 2020 CWA Local 3645 held System Board of Appeal in CLT.  

An agent from CLT was appealing a termination for work performance.  The Company accused the agent of violating the zero-tolerance policy by cursing at their manager. The agent denied the accusations and had two witness statements that said they didn’t hear the agent curse. The Company had two MGT witnesses that stated they did hear the agent curse. The Union argued that the agent was being targeted because agent was not liked by the Company because of previous ethics complaints. The Company argued that the Union’s statements were not true and that they had witnesses to agent’s aradic behavior. After reviewing all the facts, the Board could not agree so the case dead locked. This case will be sent to the CWA District 3 Staff Representative for review for arbitration.  

 

An agent from ILM was appealing a termination for travel pass violations. The Company accused the agent of violating the travel pass rules by taking modeling jobs and using their travel pass privileges for said jobs. The Company presented copies of the agents Facebook page where the agent bragged about various modeling jobs. The Union argued that the Company did not provide proof of payment for said jobs and that anybody can make claims on Facebook but it not be true. The burden of proof lies on the Company and the Union argued that the Company did not prove just cause. The Company also claimed the agent flew and called out sick while flying. After review of the facts, the agent flew home at 9 am and their shift wasn’t until 8 pm. According to the Piedmont Policy and Procedures manual, Section 19. #2 – an employee must make certain that they are able to return with enough time to report to work for their next scheduled shift when flying. The Union argued that the agent arriving at 9 am was more than enough time for them to get to work at 8 pm, so calling in sick that evening did not violate the travel policy. After reviewing all the facts, the board decided to return the agent back to work with no back pay and suspension of travel privileges for six months. The agent can’t have any travel violations (for Just Cause) for six months following the 6 months suspension.

An agent from CLT was appealing a Level 3 for work performance for aircraft damage. The Company said the agent did not park the jet bridge correctly which caused the aircraft to drop causing financial damage to the aircraft. The agent claimed they didn’t park the jet bridge crooked. The Union argued the Company could not provide evidence that it was the agent who moved the jet bridge and they claimed that aircraft MTC was on board and they believed someone else moved the jet-bridge because the agent had clocked out for the night. The Company argued that it had to be the agent when they parked the bridge after the plane arrived. The damage was not found until 1.5 hours later.  After reviewing all the facts, the board dead locked. This case will be sent to the CWA District 3 Staff Representative for review for arbitration.
