    My fellow 512 family,

    We deeply regret the inconvenience caused when the food truck ran out of food during the 512 Members Appreciation Day event. We understand the frustration and disappointment this must have caused. We called for another truck, but it would have taken several hours, and the food truck company couldn’t find another solution.

    We intended to celebrate and deeply appreciate the hard work and dedication to our union. We understand that not having enough food for everyone marred what was meant to be a joyous and rewarding event. We take full responsibility for this oversight and are committed to making it right. 

    To make it up to our members, we are planning a follow-up appreciation event where we will ensure ample food and beverages for those who missed out and our midnight crews. The food truck event will be on Tuesday, June 25, 2024, from 5:00 p.m. to 11:45 p.m.

    We value our 512 Union family and your contribution to our local, and we want to ensure that future events more tangible reflect our gratitude. Again, please accept our heartfelt apologies, and thank you for your continued support and dedication.

    APFA Negotiations update: An intensive week of mediation at the National Mediation Board ended without an agreement. Although they moved closer on some of the other components of their agreement, they continue to remain apart on key issues, including the date of signing the wage increase and retroactive pay.

    The TWU/IAM Negotiations Committee met at Elk Grove, Illinois's IAM 141 District office. We met all week and continued to review and discuss critical issues as we prepared to meet with the Company in the fall. 

    We met with ORD management on Friday for our weekly meeting. We discussed the CDA trial on limiting the number of carts or LD3 containers in the T5 bag room. The trial will end on June 21st at 23:59. The company will add additional support. It seems to have reduced congestion at the IAB but has caused additional hardship with baggage delivery.

    Other items discussed were that T5 electric tugs should not pull CU and dollies, L9 and L11 ready rooms, bagroom support, and the fourth person for widebody aircraft. 

    We are waiting for communication notice from the company on Chicago paid leave and have a Zoom call with the AA SkyView 8 labor team on June 28, 2024. 

    Lastly, with the summer heat, we have Sqwincher’s Electrolyte Freeze pops at the field office and water fill stations throughout the ramp area. Please take time to rehydrate yourself. You can contact our safety team or field office at 773-894-0077 if you have any additional concerns.

    This is just a reminder that the TWU Local 512 Golf Outing sign-up is available at the field office or at the hall. This event will be held on July 29, 2024.

    Sincerely and fraternally,

    Juan Elvira
