President Elvira and I attended the Joint Safety Committee Meeting on March 5th and made it known that the officers of Local 512 will take an active role in the safety of our members. Included in the weekly update will be a first ever Safety Minute published by the local. The Safety Minute is intended to educate the members of this local on safety. The Safety Minute will be enforced by our stewards and safety stewards.
SM-01: The (AOA) Aircraft Operations Area is a very busy and dangerous work environment and extra precautions must be adhered to on the movement of aircraft. We are telling our members not to deviate from the gate push back diagrams, even if requested by the flight deck or at the direction of the tower traffic planner. A safe aircraft push is one that strictly follows the push diagram. NOT following the push diagram could lead to disciplinary action by the company.
Safety on the ground leads to safety in the air…………………….

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
This week we met with American Vice President of ORD operations Franco Tedeschi, It was a meet and greet with the newly elected top officers of the TWU local 512. We discussed a ray of topics and issues that were concerning to the company and our members. One main topic, was to have a clear line of communication between the company and the local officers. Another topic was the support that the local gave at the beginning of our term on the issue of the Chicago lease agreement with American and how the membership can be harm if this wasn’t settled soon.
During the late hours of Wednesday, I received a call and was brief by Mr. Tedeschi that the company and the City of Chicago have come to an lease agreement and the City will expedite three gates at the L Stinger that American will share. In addition, terminal 1 and 3 would be renovated and terminal 5 also upgraded and expanded. The TWU 512 local will always support growth that will benefit our membership.
We met with the owner of Aries bus company that provides transportation to and from the employees parking lot. Discussions were on how they can tweak their schedule and give our members better service. Agreement was made to meet on future dates to resolve on going issues.
Vice President Szwed, has created a new Safety Minutes blog that will provide safety information to the membership. The officers of local 512 will take an active role along with its shop and safety stewards on educating its members. Safety on the ground leads to safety in the air…..
