Sisters and Brothers,
As we continue to prepare for Alaska Airlines contract negotiations, we invite RSSA members and COPS members (including IAM represented Virgin America employees) to now submit proposals for changes to our collective bargaining agreements. We have held negotiation preparation training with our negotiations committee and we have asked for your participation in our negotiations survey, which is still open. Each of these steps help us be prepared to start talks with the company. Now we are asking for your contract proposals for the new agreements. Remember, submitting contract proposals is open to ALL Alaska IAM members and our new Virgin America colleagues.
All proposed changes to the contract must be submitted to District Lodge 142 at the address listed on the proposal form and be received on or before June 1, 2017.
Each submission and must contain the following information:
- Identify the article, paragraph and page number to be amended
- Proposed contract language change or modification
- Example of problem or reason for change
- Your name, Local Lodge/Station and employee and/or and IAM Book number
Contract proposal forms may be obtained from your Shop Steward or you can submit your proposal online by clicking the link at the bottom of this bulletin. When submitting more than one change, each change should be on a separate form and must include your signature and IAM book number or employee number.
With best wishes I remain,
PRESIDENT & DIRECTING
