Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Summer is winding down, vacations are also winding down so we would like to remind all of our brothers and sisters when returning back to work after some well-deserved time off to please be conscientious and continue to work safe and smart. If you do get hurt on the job, no matter how minor it may seem please at the very least inform a manager so the injury or incident will become documented. You may feel fine after any minor occurrence but as time passes the condition may worsen. Some of us may believe that immediately reporting any types of injury or occurrences to a manager affects our PIP. Lost work day cases do affect the PIP, when reporting injuries immediately we can address these injuries to possibly avoid lost time in some cases.

The 2016 Employee Survey will begin on August 22 and run through September 9. We encourage all employees to please participate so your thoughts and concerns are heard. Results are received by managers, remain anonymous, and will reflect what improvements are needed and what’s going well among the teams.  Participating will also demonstrate to our customers and throughout the Boeing Enterprise that Philadelphia is second to none when we continue to build our great products at this site.

Lastly, many thanks to Matt Rodgers, Jason Bonacquisti, and the rest of the Communication’s Committee for what was a great 2nd Annual “Cornhole” (baggo) Tournament which was held at our Union hall this past July 23rd. Once again this event proved to be another success in bringing together our brothers and sisters outside of the workplace to socialize and raise money for a good cause. Many thanks to all who attended and who participated on what turned out to be a very hot and humid day. We look forward to many more tournaments in the future.

Congratulations to our winners of this tournament.

1st Place – Jason Bonacquisti / Dan Tobin

2nd Place – Billy Tobin / Ken Elkind

3rd Place – Steve Gregg / George (Deebo) Trosley


Reminder: Please have an inspector check and approve your work before “buying” your completed job(s). This may prove to be critical in ensuring the safety of our customers who fly in our products and safeguarding your employment at The Boeing Company.

Yours in solidarity,

Mike Tolassi, President

Brothers and Sisters,

We have been informed by the company today that they wish to extend the Memorial Day Holiday, adding the option of Leave Without Pay (LWOP), infraction free to all employees wishing to take advantage of an extra day off to Friday, May 27th. Of course any employee still can utilize any accumulated vacation and sick leave available if they choose to. Employees wishing to take the extra day (LWOP) infraction free must notify their manager by end of shift Wednesday, May 25th. However, employees failing to ask for and do not receive prior permission or arriving late or leaving early on Friday, May 27th will still receive infractions under PRO-5097.

We also have been informed by the company that beginning July 1st 2016 they will implement FMLA changes as follows:

Employees using FMLA will be required to use accumulated vacation and sick leave in connection with FMLA designated absences, to the extent that the employee has any accumulated vacation or sick leave available.
