UAW Local 1069

July 18, 2019
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The company has posted two (2) new internal job notifications on “Between the Blades” for any UAW Local 1069 employees wishing to apply. As of now, employees will not receive notifications for job openings through their “Careers @ Boeing” profile due to the transition from Total Access to Worklife. These issues are presently being addressed by the Company so that employees will be able to receive notifications in the near future. The current job openings are:
80A11; Inspector-Final Assembly (5), Req. ID # 000000123643, 1st shift.
80A13; Inspector-Preflight (1), Req. ID # 00000123102, 2nd shift.
These job requisitions will expire on Tuesday, July 23, 2019 @ 11:59 PM.
UAW employees interested in applying for one of these positions please go on to the “Between the Blades” site and click on the hyperlink provided:
Creating Job Interest Notifications for UAW 1069 Members
You will be walked through on how to apply for these job openings along with instructions on updating and/or creating your “Career Profile”. There is also a link to a useful video which shows a demo in Workday on Career Profiles:
Career Profile in Workday Introduction
Employees needing further assistance can contact the company’s “Hypercare” team. Cindy Weaver who works out of 3-04 Bld. and Yolanda Jefferson who works from 3-92 Bld. can personally assist our members. This assistance from these representatives is only available for a short time.
We remind all employees to please continue to “double / triple check” all of your completed work for any discrepancies along with checking for FOD in and around your areas. Always get an inspector to check all of your finished jobs. We want to assure we maintain our status as No. 1 enterprise wide in Safety, Quality, and Productivity. How we perform in our work greatly enhances our cause in getting new and additional work for our future.
Lastly, for those UAW sisters and brothers who ordered shirts on our UAW online store, your orders have arrived. As of today, I believe all shirts have been distributed to their recipients. If you did not receive your order, contact your steward or call us at the hall.

In Solidarity,

Michael Tolassi

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Your UAW leadership proudly welcomed United States Senator Robert P. Casey at our union hall on Monday afternoon, June 17, 2019 for a “greet and chat.” During his visit, he gave us a copy of a letter that was signed by many U.S. Senators from many states. It was sent out to members of the Armed Services Committee and members of Defense Appropriations Committee. Their letter expresses the Senators’ concern about the U.S. Army’s decision to halt procurement of the CH-47 F-Model Chinook helicopter beyond Fiscal Year 2020. They asked these committees to review the Army’s budget request for 2020 and beyond, to ensure steady funding for the CH-47F Block II program, which is necessary to maintain our warfighters’ battlefield advantage. Much thanks to Bob Casey for taking time to come see us at our hall and show his support for this critical program.
We wish to inform our UAW Local 1069 members that our Communications Committee along with Leonetti Promos have developed a UAW on-line store for our sisters and brothers who wish to order UAW apparel and additional items with our logo. As of now, our first 2 designs of UAW T-shirts are available for order which will close out this Friday, June 21. 2019. You can visit to place your orders. You can pay online or give your cash order to your shop stewards, committeeman or bring it to the hall. Shirts come in nine (9) different colors. Prices are $10.00 (small – XL), $12.00 (2XL), and $14.00 (3XL – 4XL). Look for additional items and apparel on this site in the near future.
Effective July 12, 2019 there will be a quarterly Cost Of Living Adjustment (COLA) in the amount of $0.20. The current maximum COLA amount for this unit is $0.57.
Lastly, we cannot stress enough to continue to provide our men and women who proudly serve our country with the highest quality aircraft we build here at our Ridley Park facility. Always continue to check all work while performing your tasks and also when your job is completed. Insist on getting an inspector to look at your completed jobs. A second set of eyes is paramount, due to the nature of the work we perform.
A reminder to our quality folks to assure you inspect all work submitted thoroughly and continue to “catch” any and all defects prior to delivery to our customers. We want to maintain the highest quality product, continue to keep all programs in our facility, and always lobby for additional, future work.

In Solidarity,
Michael Tolassi
