Rich Delaney Update 2/9/14

Rich Delaney, 09 February 2014: Download

Another paycheck has been issued and still our members have not been fully and correctly paid for work they have performed for United Airlines. That is a fact that United management downplays. They expect their employees to be grateful to receive any of the committed wage increases they agreed to last fall. Finally being paid the right amount in current pay periods was a great accomplishment, after 3 months and was of course welcomed by employees that worked hard during the busiest, coldest, most adverse weather conditions in recent memory; knowing every day they were not being paid as much as they should have been until the middle of January. The question that is asked every day now is “when do I get my money?” The answer continues to be “not now”. United Airlines cannot, or will not, give their employees, our members, any idea when they will be paid for their services from November 1, 2013. Updates to the IAM regarding the status of owed money have stopped, with the explanation that the issue has been given to another department for completion and they are working on it.

Rich Delaney, 10 November 2013: Download
Discussions were held this past week with United over several issues relating to our newly ratified agreement. Enacting of changed provisions of our contracts, seniority integration, and next steps necessary to bring all IAM members under ratified agreements were the subjects. Continuous conversations have been held to insure that everything is being done to correctly pay and distribute the required retroactive/signing bonus payment in the timely manner the contract calls for. The IAM is working with United representatives to review the original list of eligibles, and the amount each person is owed, to make sure that it is accurate. We have found that some names are appearing on the list that should be removed while eligible members’ names have been left off the list and need to be included.
