FROM THE MILITARY AFFAIRS COMMITTEE: SECONDARY LINES
QUALITY OF LIFE SECONDARY LINE ALERT 
The ALPA Military Affairs Committee has identified a potential problem with the new SLG software when Military members input MLA requests before the SLG awards are published. In the past, both the Company and ALPA recommended providing the Company with advance notice of MLA in order to assist the Company with futures planning. Previous Secondary Line processes would honor the MLA footprint and build lines around that. The current SLG software will not necessarily honor the MLA footprint, and several members have found themselves with large trips being knocked out by MLA, rather than having the MLA footprint honored. Until a resolution is identified, your ALPA Military Affairs Committee recommends that Secondary Line holders delay submission of your MLA notification until you actually receive your SLG award, in order to avoid adverse adjustments to your BLG pay.

FAA MEDICAL FORM 8500
Recently, the FAA crosschecked Veterans Affairs (VA) records with pilots' inputs on their FAA Form 8500-8 in regards to disability benefits. The FAA discovered four pilots were receiving benefits from the VA and failing to disclose the information on their Application for Airman's Medical Certificate ( Bay Area Pilots Indicted, DOT IG Announcement). If you feel you this may affect you, we advise you to contact one of the FDX ALPA attorneys and discuss your issue with Aviation Medicine Advisory Service (AMAS).

FEDEX ALPA MENTOR PROGRAM
T he Membership Committee recently launched a new program aimed at pilot mentoring for new hires. Our first group of pilot mentors were trained last September and assigned to new hires in October. This initiative was designed by and is run by ALPA pilot volunteers. The program's focus is to provide information, procedures and resources related to a career as a FedEx pilot, specifically during the first 12-15 months of employment. The intent is to assist new hires and to help them successfully navigate through their probation period. I am sure that you all agree that having a mentor available would be a great resource to them as they learn the FedEx system form. As FedEx continues to hire, we will continue to need more mentors. We are seeking dedicated ALPA
volunteers to become mentors. We will host our next in-person mentor training seminar in Memphis February 12-13, 2019.
For those in ANC, CGN and HKG, we will have online training sessions that will be scheduled in the near future. To read more and sign up to be a part of this great program, please click here
