Voluntary Layoff Information

March 19, 2014

Brothers and Sisters,

            Many of you have received notice from the Company’s HR department concerning the upcoming layoff scheduled for April 25, 2014.  The email identifies Local 1069 members, or their supervisors, as being in one of the job codes that have been opened for Voluntary Layoff (VLO).  Those are as follows:

Assembler-Sheetmetal B (18A05)

Aircraft Technician (11C10)

Instrumentation Mechanic (11A13)

Painter-Aircraft (12A07)

Senior Developmental Mechanic (52A13)

If you are in one of those job codes and would like to be considered for the VLO, fill out the attached form on the company email and return to HR.

            IMPORTANT NOTE FOR ALL OTHER 1069 MEMBERS!!!  If you are considering moving to another job and have not put in a transfer slip for that job, DO SO IMMEDIATELY!!  The next step in the VLO process is for the Company to open up the VLO option to Local 1069 members that are not in the affected classifications.  Members from all other job classifications can apply for the VLO.  That means that the company may have to backfill some of those positions, as needed, in addition to any other VLO layoffs.  Please contact your Shop Steward, Committeeman, or HR Service Center to complete that task. 

Be sure that your work record is up to date.  When reviewing the Promotion Review List (PRL) to backfill any jobs, the Company will reference your work record to see if you have any experience or skills in your requested position.  If you do not have any experience or qualifications for the job, you may not be selected for the position.  If your record is not up to date, do so immediately!  Fax any changes and updates to Dee Perala at 206-662-6743.  Don’t delay!



NOTE:  Remember, we have our monthly membership meeting this Sunday, March 23, 2014, at 10:00 AM, at the Local 1069 Hall.  With our current CBA ending this October, your monthly meeting is the one place to find out what’s really going on instead of listening to harmful rumors going around the shop that always seems to pop up in times like this.


Sisters Sheila Simpson and Suzanne Povse, Chair and Co-Chair of the UAW Local 1069 Women’s Committee, would like to extend an invitation to members to join them for a “meet & greet” meeting with the Women’s Committee on Thursday, March 20, 2014, at 3:00, at the Local 1069 Hall, to talk about future plans and events.  They invite you to participate in our monthly meetings as they work to make this committee one of unity and strength.  Your participation can bring many new ideas, suggestions, along with stories to tell. 

Please go and enjoy the fellowship of your brothers and sisters, and make some new friends at this important meeting!  This is a great networking opportunity for 1069 members to Stand United in Solidarity.  They look forward to seeing you there.


Yours in Solidarity,

Chris Owens, President
