Positive Rate Weekly - 9/11/18

 

20180717_prsurveyheader.png
S eptember 11, 2001 is a day that forever changed America. It's a day that pilots, in particular, take to heart because of our professional connection to the first victims of the attack. Today, we join the nation in observing Patriot Day and all that it represents—our country's resilience in the midst of tragedy, the strength and compassion of the American people and the value of life. 
As we reflect on the 17th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9/11, may we all take a moment to honor the victims of 9/11 and pay tribute to the crew of United Flight 93, United Flight 175, American Airlines Flight 11, and American Airlines Flight 77. 
FDX MEC EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT ELECTION
ALPA's Board of Directors will meet in Washington, D.C. the week of October 15-18. In conjunction with the Board of Directors meeting, each of the Group A airlines and Group B and C airline groups will be electing Executive Vice Presidents to two (2) year terms commencing January 1, 2019.
As FDX is a single Group A airline, the MEC will be electing a pilot from FDX to represent them on the Executive Council. Any FDX ALPA member in good standing is eligible to run for this position. Interested members for this position should contact FDX MEC Vice Chairman Captain Dave Chase at Dave.Chase@alpa.org.

Please utilize the duty officer for any last minute MLA requirements, and be sure to include in your comments on the VIPs MLA form that your duty involves hurricane efforts. Stay safe, and contact your ALPA Military Affairs Committee with any questions or concerns.

FROM CONTRACT ENFORCEMENT: RESERVE AND SICK LEAVE
Any assignment given to a reserve pilot while he/she is on sick leave must be a legal assignment considering both the FARs and the CBA. When a pilot is on sick leave, the pilot must be assigned open time as if he/she were not sick. Reserve pilots that are on sick leave should be aware of illegal assignments. If assigned two or more trips while you are sick, you should be able to operate said trips in the well world. Therefore, while on sick leave, we ask that pilots double check reserve assignments to ensure compliance with Section 14.B.2.c.iii.  
The following examples are all illegal assignments:
  • While sick, you are given an assignment and leveled. When given a subsequent assignment, it may not conflict with your previous assignment (overlap).
  • When you are given an assignment, and hub turned into another assignment, the duty limitations still apply. Therefore, if given a day showtime the scheduled hours may not exceed 13:00 hours.
  • While sick, you are assigned a trip that, if flown, would cause you to exceed FAR flight time limits.            
14.B.2.c.iii.           
A reserve pilot on sick leave shall be assigned open time as if he were not on sick leave ( Section 25.G.3. Open Time Assignment and Section 25.M.6. Reserve Assignment Options). A reserve pilot will maintain his leveling position on the reserve list, and the scheduled credit hours for any trips he is assigned and removed as sick will be credited toward his RLG/ mini-RLG and deducted from his sick bank. Commencing at 0900 LBT each day, a reserve pilot with an assignment(s) having a showtime during the next day shall be removed for sick leave and such assignment shall be available for open time assignment by CRS.
If you have any questions, please contact Contract Enforcement, FedEx-Enforcement@alpa.org.

The Membership Committee is seeking volunteers to serve as pilot mentors to our new hires. The intent is to assist new hires and help them successfully navigate through their probation period. We are sure that you would all agree that having a mentor available would be a great resource to them as they learn the FedEx system form. Training will be held September 18th and 19th for those interested in volunteering. Please click here to learn more and for information on how to sign up to be a mentor.

IPAD TIP: SIG NOTES NOW ON THE IPAD
In continuing efforts to make the iPad more useful to you, we are pleased to announce the addition of the monthly SIG notes to the pilot iPad via the Secure Content Locker. These notes can be accessed by navigating to Repositories > AirWatch Content > Reference > Scheduling Improvement Group (SIG). The monthly SIG notes are an “On Demand” document meaning you will have to go to the document and request its download if you want to read it later offline, as opposed to an “Automatic” download document. While this folder only has the monthly SIG notes at present, it may expand to have other scheduling related content at a future date.
It is our goal in Flight Ops iPad Support to continue to provide you with helpful information. Please feel free to let us know what you think by writing to iPad Support at FDCMS@fedex.com
