Dear Brothers and Sisters,
This past Tuesday, September 1, 2020, The Boeing Company held a ceremony recognizing the first delivery of the MH-47F Block II Chinook for Army Special Operations. We sincerely thank all employees involved with this program, especially UAW Local 1069 Brothers and Sisters. Your hard work is instrumental in this much needed program. We were especially appreciative of our political friends who were in attendance, which I feel need mentioning. U.S. Senator Tom Carper-Delaware, U.S. Senator Chris Coons-Delaware, Congressman Donald Norcross-New Jersey, Congresswoman Lisa Blunt-Rochester-Delaware, Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick-PA, Congressman Dwight Evans-PA, Congressman Brendan Boyle-PA, Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon-PA, U.S. Senator Tim Kearney-PA, and a representative from the office of Congresswoman Madeleine Dean-PA were in attendance. I was able to meet and speak one-on-one with all of our distinguished guests. Each of them assured me and pledged to UAW Local 1069 members their continued support for all of our programs at this site. Many thanks to our Brothers and Sisters who greeted our visitors in the plant. Once again, they were very impressed with the work we do and with our 1st class factory.

In addition, please continue to perform quality work at your maximum potential and be aware of Foreign Object Debris (FOD) in and around your shops, especially in our aircrafts. Always insist on having your inspector check, double check, and triple check your in process and completed assignments. This is critical to what we do here and in particular to the men and women who fly on our aircraft.

Lastly, at this time we are still waiting for restrictions and mandates to be lifted prior to returning back to normal with having or scheduling any membership meetings. We are closely monitoring this situation in the hopes of resuming business as usual real soon.
Please keep in mind during this Labor Day Holiday and every day how valuable your contributions and accomplishments have paved the way for the successes of The Boeing Company. Enjoy this holiday weekend with family and friends.

Always remain united and stay well

In Solidarity,

Michael Tolassi
