Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Beginning this Friday, June 19, 2020, the Company will no longer recognize “infraction-free” time off for Production & Maintenance employees at our Ridley Park site due to “fear of returning to work, non-COVID related illnesses, and/or lack of public transportation availability.”

The Company will however recognize “Leave without Pay” (LWOP) infraction free for a designated COVID-19 absence for one or more days which will include partial days. These situations consist of when employees are self-isolating due to a recommendation of a health care provider, a high risk condition, living with or caring for someone with a high risk condition, pregnancy, or to care for a child impacted by a school or a place of care closure. For these types of absences to be excused and fall under infraction-free, employees will be required to submit a COVID absence request form. These forms will be reviewed by the Boeing Leave Service Center. This form will be available on the coronavirus website (COVID Absence Request Form). LWOP may be used regardless of an employee’s sick/vacation balance. For more information regarding this pay practice visit the coronavirus website.

In addition, there will be a Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) for this quarter of $-0.07 effective July 10, 2020. The current maximum COLA amount for this unit is: $0.64.

Lastly, we are still waiting for the mandates and restrictions set by the State of Pennsylvania and Gov. Wolf to ease before we can continue with our monthly membership meetings. We will surely keep our membership informed once we are able to get back to business.

Continue to remain united and stay UAW strong. Rely and help one another through these tough times. Our hard work and commitment made this site #1 enterprise wide.
In Solidarity,

Mike Tolassi
