Brothers and Sisters,
We would like to thank all Boeing employees, especially our UAW brothers and sisters who engaged in the “Watch Us Fly Chinook Block II” call to action. So far, this campaign has generated more than 5,000 letters to congressional members which also included our local representatives from PA, NJ, and DE. I also maintain communication with the political folks who were endorsed by this local during their run for office, to insist they continue our fight for this very important program.
In addition, I strongly urge ALL of our UAW Local 1069 brothers and sisters to please contribute (voluntarily) to the UAW’s V-CAP check-off program. Our UAW members can help elect pro-worker candidates by contributing and supporting V-CAP. This money will be used to support pro-worker political candidates who have earned the endorsement of the UAW. We need to continue to remain politically active because our ability to make progress for our members at the negotiating table is tied to our ability to elect pro-labor candidates to office. One of the most effective ways to ensure that all working Americans are represented in politics is to assure that pro-worker candidates are elected and held accountable. The V-CAP check off language in our CBA allows us to contribute directly from our paychecks (monthly), to decide how much to contribute, and to make the contribution adjustments at any time. Please see your union representative or contact your Union Hall to sign up for the V-Cap check off program.

Lastly, the current quarterly adjustment (COLA) amount for this unit is $-0.06. The current maximum COLA amount for this unit is $0.37.

Please attend our membership meeting this Sunday, March 24, 2019 @ 10:00 AM

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Below is a communication The Boeing Company will or by now has sent out to all UAW employees:
“The Company and the UAW have been working together to offer current members of the UAW an opportunity to develop their skills in the area of Composite Fabrication due to rising demand for that skill set. This opportunity is an individual decision to develop your skills to be considered qualified for future Composite Fabricator (15C08) job classification openings.
This training opportunity will be offered to all members of the UAW who have not previously or currently hold the Composite Fabricator job classification. Interested employees will be given the opportunity to attend Composite Fabrication training on their own time. Those interested in being trained to gain the composite’s skill set will be required to attend and successfully complete the Composite Training class. The class will be held for 5 consecutive weeks and are scheduled to occur on Monday and Wednesday from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for a total of 50 hours of training. Once an employee has successfully completed the training class they will receive a Certificate of Completion and be considered qualified for future openings in the Composite Fabricator (15C08) job classification. The first Composite Training class will begin on Monday, February 18, 2019.”

We encourage all UAW 1069 employees who are seriously interested to sign up for this training opportunity regardless of your present work shift and current situation. Employees will be selected in seniority order.
We will meet with the company prior to the start of the training class to work out all final details in regards to this training opportunity. Should you have any questions or concerns please see your Union Representative or call us at the Union Hall.

Lastly, the company will also send out a communication to all employees titled “Speak up about the Importance of Block II”. We greatly encourage ALL Boeing employees to engage by “clicking” on the provided link within this communication. By doing so this will automatically generate a letter that will be sent to Congress, U.S. Senators, and Representatives in your state and Congressional district. Please be on the lookout for this message that will be sent to your emails.
