Dear Sisters and Brothers,
This week, a letter of agreement between American Airlines and the TWU/IAM Association was signed regarding profit sharing. The 2022 profit-sharing year will be 12 months beginning on April 1, 2022, and ending on March 31, 2023. Profit-sharing award payments for 2022 will be made by June 30, 2023. There will be no changes to the 2023 profit-sharing calculation and will continue the 12 months from January 1, 2023, and ending on December 31, 2023. The LOA is only a one-time non-precedent setting basis. Hopefully, a robust summer can lift the Company profitably.
In our monthly Joint Safety Committee Meeting, all in-house vendors provided their safety observations of their employees and concerns to the committee. Aires Company has three drivers in training and five in the badging process. New items presented in the meeting were allocators assigning untrained crews for widebody offloading. In addition, T-5 safety concerns, vendors parking in loading areas, and equipment left unsecured.
We also discussed Push-out training and identifying the Pool shift people qualified to push by manning to be placed appropriately in needed areas. The Company will be adding Wheelchair lifts in the coming summer to the ramp.
In our weekly meeting with management, we discussed bagroom issues with pier assignments. In addition, Open-Time shift days off availability.
The Use of personal electronic devices is strictly prohibited within the ramp areas. It would include cell phones, pads, laptops, earbuds, and other personal devices while driving or operating a vehicle and performing an airfield task. Please refrain from these activities to prevent your SIDA badge from being taken away.
