HAWAIIAN AIRLINES MECHANIC & RELATED NEGOTIATIONS UPDATE

 

Negotiations were held June 8-12, 2015 and July 12-17, 2015.  Representing the membership for District Lodge 142 was President and Directing General Chair  Dave Supplee;  General Chair Randy Griffith;  Special Representative Dave Figueira;   Local Lodge 1979 President/Grievance Committee Chairman  Brian Simonson;  and Grievance Committeeman  Randall Bangay.   For the Company was VP Employee/Labor Relations  Karen Berry;  HA Maintenance and Engineering  Lance Higa;  HA Finance  Stefan Knoepfel;  and HA Sr. Contract Administrators, Keao Mattos and Aaron Iga.

Over the course of these dates and with the guidance and assistance of Grand Lodge Representative Tom Regan, a complete economic proposal was drafted and presented to the company by your committee. Discussions revolved around questions the company had regarding our economic proposal.  Further talks were focused on the Line Servicemen classification and the scope of their work. Both sides clearly identified what their key issues were in an effort to move the process along.  All-in-all these negotiations were very productive.

In order for the Negotiating Committee to secure the Agreement this membership deserves, the support of the membership is more important now than ever. It is crucial that the members express their desire for better pay, benefits, and work rules to their immediate management.

Future negotiations are scheduled for August 17-21, 2015.

 In Solidarity,

Randy Griffith
