Brothers and Sisters,
With the efforts of your leadership and the cooperation of the company we were able to secure the recall of 18 of our UAW members. Be assured that we will not rest until every UAW member on layoff is returned to his/her job. With the number reaching 90 potential UAW members taking the VSP, there in some cases will be a need to backfill open positions other than what has been recalled. If you are interested in any of these positions that may become available, please remember to build your profile on the Careers@Boeing system in total access. Even if an open position would be natural progression for you, you still MUST build your profile and apply for the position or positions available.
We are continuing our efforts to bring more work to our site, primarily work from other Boeing programs. Our goal is to procure any defense or commercial work that becomes available as other Boeing sites transition into new purposes. We believe our record speaks for itself when it comes to the quality and quantity of work put out by our facility. We are emphasizing our strength of an experienced and committed UAW workforce. How to Create a Profile? It is quick and easy. Go to Total Access, click on my Career and then click on the Careers@Boeing link and look for the Candidate Profile box on the right. Under the description, click on the Access my profile. Follow the directions to complete your profile. In addition there are tips online and tip sheets available in the HR Service Center of from a Committeeman or Shop Steward.
- If you are signed up for the VSP program and are planning on leaving in September you need to sign your release and waver form by September 22nd.
- Health Assessments must be completed by December 1, 2015 in order for you to avoid the additional $50 per month Charge to your medical insurance.
- General Membership meetings resume at the hall on Sunday September 27 @ 10:00am
