2. LEC Update
A. LEC President Report: LEC P Laura Masserant
Budget 16K a month and over budget in Sept/Oct because of the training (FADAP and Advanced Grievance Training). Andy is cutting the CB pay and some of our AFA paid by Company is being reduced. Our Benefit committee appears to be first on the list and it is only a total of 30 TFP’s for all bases. Laura has asked that our committee members’ complete monthly logs to show work completed. The company will only allow 1 chair to meetings and no additional pay. Vice chair can attend but no CB pay.
The Inflight Crew Room is moving and will eventually be just outside the KCM area where the pilot room is now. That is also going to be the area that is going to be the FA area for rest.
B. LEC VP Report: VP Jake Jones
Pretty much the same thing doing a lot of back scene issues. In office Monday thru Friday and fly on the weekends and that is the only time my phone is off. In charge of the implementation meetings and those are once a month along with scheduling once a month.
C. LEC Secretary: Sect/Tresurer Linda Christou
Membership dues update: Check to see if it was paid because notices cross in the mail with payment updates from Alaska. First, you need to review your paystub and you look at your 20th check for the month you were invoiced (if you get a invoice from AFA International Membership department). If you are invoiced for October you look at your October 20th paycheck not September 20th paycheck.
3. Open Time Update:
The company believes it didn’t crash. Company added more servers to help offset the accessibility issues, but Seattle reports continuing concerns with log on attempts. The MEC will discuss at the next meeting, November 9-10. Seattle Open Time accessibility is added to the agenda to discuss possible changes to the December OT for January. It must be fair for all bases~ MEC is monitoring OT and Laura will send out a blast (Went out as MEC blast on 10.27.5)
December Staffing update: More flying in the back end of December so bid accordingly.
4. BUDGET REVIEW
Went over it earlier in Laura’s report
Meeting adjourn at 2:50pm
