Brothers and Sisters:

Negotiations continued this week with meetings being conducted virtually on the Zoom platform. The full negotiating committees for the Company and the Union were present.

Both parties picked up on the progress from our last meeting in January 2022 with comprehensive passes being exchanged covering whole articles in 2, 9, 10, 12, 14, 16, 17 … Read More...

IAM/PSA Airlines 2021 Negotiations Survey

August 25, 2021 Admin 0

With the call for proposals released, there is another invaluable communication tool to help with the proposals 
that you are submitting. As was provided for in 2015 before negotiations began, we have worked together to 
finalize and publish a survey. This survey will be instrumental in collecting data that is normally generated by 
word of mouth and sometimes painfully extracted from proposals, with the issue being trying to understand 
exactly what the intent of the proposal is, and more importantly, what is most important to the PSA Airlines 
membership. It is extremely important that 100% of our membership take the … Read More...

“I wanted to share with you a photo of the First Union Steward class that myself  and seven others attended this week ( Wednesday and Thursday) at our Local “Victory 1725 Lodge” in CLT.  This was a great class to be a part of.  We all learned about our IAM union and how we can be better stewards for our members, be better communicators, and help to build and strengthen a spirit of cooperation between the Union and Management.  

This course helped us define some objectives, and some of our different rolls and responsibilities as a steward.   I wanted to … Read More...
