Dear Brothers and Sisters,
On this Friday's Presidents conference call, there was no update on the second equity distribution. The International is still waiting for the refund from the IRS of 6.1 million dollars. They will reach out to the agency for a quicker release of the funds. Once those funds are deposit into the account, then it would take about two weeks to process and distribute.
This last Thursday, our safety team participated in this year's Safety Fair. The theme for this year was "Human Factors and the Dirty Dozen," lack of assertiveness was apparent for the safety team, and they focus on seat belt compliance.
The Team's display consisted of videos of the dangers of not wearing your seatbelt and mock-up of an actual seat with a seat belt. Wearing seat belts while driving on the ramp is a must, one should never take shortcuts when it comes to safety.
The frustration of our members with the bus break-downs and its service has come to a boiling point, and the time is now for new buses and new service. We will continue to document and push management to reach this goal, but they are adamant that refurbishing the old buses will solve the problem.

Clarification on bringing oversized bags up the jet-bridge stairs is as follows.
The dumb-waiter is only to be used when items cannot be safely
carried up the jet-bridge stairs. An item can be safely carried when the FSC is able to carry it with one hand while utilizing the handrail with the other hand.
When strollers, wheelchairs or heavy crew bags cannot be carried while holding the handrail, they may be sent up the dumb-waiter. The crew chief will determine the need to contact customer care and have them send the dumb-waiter down for loading. Customer care can be reached on channel 1 of the radio. When the crew chief is unable to reach customer care they are to contact their zone CSM for assistance in the communication process. We hope this clears up any confusion on the issue. As always the safety of our members is first and foremost.
