Hot Topic - Satellite Bases
May 15, 2019
We’ve received a number of questions about the recently announced Satellite bases. More than ten (10) years ago, the United MEC explored the concept of satellite bases and, after much research & deliberation, determined at that time that a satellite base concept did not serve the Membership for a number of good reasons.
The concerns identified at that time have been addressed and we negotiated & approved into our Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement (2016 – 2021) a Satellite Base (LOA #24) Letter of Agreement that is in our JCBA.
