Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The start of the TWU Vol benefits transition from payroll deduction to direct deposit will be from December 16, 2019, till December 21, 2019. Anyone who has not registered on the TWUAAunionbenefits.com page may go to AflacAtWork.com, which will be available on Monday the 16th to access your data for the transition. To log on, use your full employee number or Soc Sec # as your USER ID; your password is the last two digits of your SS# plus the last two digits of your birth year. Then you print your direct deposit form that shows your total benefits amount and account number and proceeds to step two on Jetnet.
The following TWU ATD products that will need to transition are Lincoln Term Life, Lincoln Accident, Lincoln Critical Illness, Hartford STD, AFLAC Critical Illness. If you do not have any of these items, then you will not be able to access the site.
The following TWU ATD products that will receive a port letter from the individual insurance Companies with instructions on how to port their coverage are Transamerica STD, Transamerica Universal Life, Humana supplemental Life, and UNUM Whole Life.
If you only have TWU (LTD) Long Term Disability as a deduction, then you do not have to take any action. This item will continue to be deducted from payroll.
If you have any questions during the dates of 12/16 - 12/21, we will be available. Otherwise, they may call Union Benefits Planners at 866-386-6060 between 9-5 pm. Monday through Friday.
On Monday, December 9, 2019, the TWU/IAM Association submitted their response in opposition to the Company's motion for contempt sanctions. They go on to say, that the Company's motion should be denied and that the Association made every reasonable effort to fulfill the Court's mandates as expressed in the (TRO) Temporary Restraining Order and Modified TRO. If the Court does not deny the motion for contempt sanctions, they requested that a discovery schedule be established, and a full evidentiary hearing is conducted, in a simple nutshell, they want their day in Court if the Judge rejects the motion for sanctions.
The TWU/IAM Association met this week with the National Mediation Board and the Company. Across the table, discussions continue and in progress. If there is a breakdown or a breakthrough, an Association update will be released.
Sincerely and fraternally,
President - TWU Local 512?

TO: ALL LOCAL 512 MEMBERS
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Recently there have been modifications to the Ramp Operations Manual. In Section 08.06.5 Powerstow Extendable Beltloader has one item added, Paragraph (I) States: "The Powerstow is designed to be safely used with one person in the bin of the aircraft."
The language in paragraph (I) is not in any other section with regards to Beltloaders. It is not in Operating Guidelines, and not in offloading or loading operation procedures. It is TWU Local 512's contention that the language specifies its design but does not mandate it.
TWU Local 512 continues stand firm on its safety concerns with regards to this addition to the Ramp Operations Manual. There is no clear procedure or guidelines how it can be safely used when there is no visual contact with an FSC in the belly that is at the end of the Powerstow.
There must always be two FSC’s in the belly to resolve this concern. The main focus should always be to provide every member with the safest work environment. We should never take shortcuts when it comes to safety.
Sincerely and Fraternally,
TRANSPORT WORKERS UNION – Local 512?Paused
