      NMB Assigns Mediator We are pleased to report that the National Mediation Board (“NMB”) has docketed our application for mediation. The NMB assigned Mediator Jim McKenzie to our negotiations. This is Mediator McKenzie’s biographical information as it appears on the NMB website: Jim Mackenzie joined the National Mediation Board as a Mediator in March of 2009.

      Your Union proposes Immediate Wage Increases and Improved Work Rules for All OneSky Pilots Today your Union Negotiators proposed a revised Protocol Agreement for Expedited Negotiations Over an Industry-Leading Collective Bargaining Agreement.

      One second after decertification, our job security will become the exclusive purview of management. Without the just cause provisions of a contract, we become subject to termination for any offense or circumstance – real or contrived. Too many pilots in a fleet? The surplus is terminated with no regard for seniority. Furlough and recall rights.

      The company admits it ... Yesterday, Executive Vice President of Operations Jason Weiss told us exactly why management supports decertification of our Union. In his letter, he wrote, “It has the potential to give us all an extraordinary advantage over our competitors …” Facts are facts.

      About IBT Local 1108

      Teamsters Local 1108 provides professional pilot representation in the Fractional Aircraft Ownership segment of the aviation industry whereby business aircraft usage is divided into fractions and marketed as shares. Union leadership anticipates strong growth for the foreseeable future in the industry, which ultimately translates into continued growth in Union membership.

      The Union is focused on the professional representation of pilots with a stated mission of securing and enhancing job security, wages, benefits, and work rules governing professional aviators. The Local Union Executive Board is committed to defending a profession that is continuously under corporate attack by demanding a safety-conscious work environment as well as a compensation schedule and benefits package commensurate with industry standards.

      Leadership is committed to advocating for a safe work environment, ensuring contract compliance, seeking dispute resolution, providing timely, relevant membership communication, sharing information, developing and offering on-site and web-based education programs, preparing for and participating in collective bargaining, initiating family awareness campaigns, making self-help preparations, organizing fellow pilot groups, and promoting professional standards.

      The simplicity of the Local 1108 operating philosophy has proved successful: The Union is a democratic organization committed to representing the membership. As such, it is the responsibility of the elected officers, staff, and volunteers to represent the collective needs of the pilot group. This philosophy has generated a significant amount of pilot support which has translated into a culture of unity, pride and strength. An informed, educated, and empowered pilot group supported by a Union who listens, responds, develops and executes has proved to be very effective. Continued expansion and reinforcement of this level of unity, pride and strength will empower leadership to make unprecedented gains on the membership’s behalf.
