Voluntary Furlough Bids Delayed (Aug 14, 2020)

Completion of Voluntary Furlough Bids Delayed


Since early this morning, representatives from the Union including Ken Diaz, MEC President, Jeff Heisey, MEC Secretary Treasurer and Greg Jacobs, Central Schedule Committee Chairperson have been at company offices with representatives from Crew Schedule Planning and Labor Relations working to process the voluntary furlough award.


Throughout the day, there were extensive discussions between the company and the Union as to which Members would be eligible to be awarded the voluntary furlough.   Despite our best efforts, the award was not completed this evening.  


We will resume the award process, which is a manual process, tomorrow morning at 10:00AM at the company offices.


That there is a great deal of anxiety surrounding the anticipated release of these awards is understandable.  However, it is important that you are assured the process will be completed accurately and consistent with the bargaining history and the terms of the Contract.  We appreciate your patience as we work to ensure  the very best possible outcome for all involved.
