September 9, 2021

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
We are all deeply saddened by the sudden passing of two very loyal 1069 members, great employees, and exceptional friends to all. Walt Sarlo (Inspector-Final Assembly) passed away on August 29, 2021 and Rick Taylor (Assembler-Sheetmetal “A”) passed away on September 2, 2021. Please keep them and their families in your prayers.

We remind ALL members that we will resume our membership meetings beginning Sunday, September 26, 2021. This meeting will be important, as they all are. We will be holding nominations at this meeting for our General Election, which will be held on Tuesday, October 12, 2021. We very much look forward to seeing all of you in attendance.

Also, the Boeing Helicopter Credit Union (BHCU) will be sponsoring their “Member Appreciation Day” at their location at 501 Industrial Highway, Ridley Park, PA 19078. This event will take place from 11:00 AM – 2:30 PM on Wednesday, September 15, 2021. Food will be provided by “The Boss with the Sauce” food truck. Please make a note of this date and time.

Lastly, there have been some rumors and confusion among some employees in the plant regarding the COVID-19 vaccine status. At this present time, The Boeing Company is NOT mandating this vaccine. As I stated in my previous Chopper, our position stands that this Company must bargain with us to mandate this vaccine, meaning your UAW Local 1069 Leadership Team believes this will constitute a change in “condition of employment.” Our current Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) does not reflect any mandatory vaccination.

Remain united and stay UAW 1069 strong

In Solidarity,

Michael Tolassi
