Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The Company has received three (3) acceptances to their offer of the Voluntary Layoff Opportunity (VLO) in the affected Maintenance classifications that have received surplus notifications. Your UAW Leadership is actively working with Company leadership to “hold on” to our remaining three (3) employees who did receive notifications and keep them in their respective job titles. We will continue our efforts to eliminate any involuntary layoff, as this remains our #1 priority.
In addition, I urge all UAW Brothers and Sisters to please perform tasks that are only required in your respective job classifications. If unsure what is entailed in your job duties, please see one of your UAW Representatives or contact us at your union hall for what your specific job responsibilities dictate. If any manager asks of you to perform work or “buy-out” jobs that are not in your specific job requirement, please ask that manager to contact your UAW Representative. We must demand that all work be performed correctly and by the proper classifications.
Lastly, thank you for the overwhelmingly response and purchase of our UAW t-shirts. We have ordered more shirts and will offer these to our members who still have interest in getting these shirts. Once again, thank you for proudly wearing and displaying our UAW logo and our red, white and blue American flag.
Update: We continue to monitor the mandates set forth by Gov. Wolf and the State of Pennsylvania due to our COVID-19 situation. I am also in continuous contact with our UAW International for any and all additional information. At this particular time, we still are not able to hold our membership meetings or even make a plan to set any dates for these meetings. We will continue to monitor these mandates and certainly will provide our membership with new reports and additional information as it changes.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The Boeing Company has decided to declare a surplus in the following classifications: Maintenance-Pipefitter-Plumber (1), Maintenance Metal Worker (2), Maintenance Worker (2), Supply Person-Facilities (1), and Employee Involvement Facilitator (1), for a total of seven (7) employees in the Facilities and Maintenance classifications. Under LOU #14 of our Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), the Company will offer a Voluntary Layoff Opportunity (VLO) to the job classifications listed above as well as employees in the Labor Pool (Janitors and Utility Workers & Cleaners). The window for anyone wishing to accept and apply for the VLO will be July 9, 2020 – July 23, 2020. If no employee takes the VLO, then the impacted employees will be notified by their managers on July 31, 2020 with an off-roll date of October 2, 2020.
Your UAW 1069 Leadership is very disappointed by the decision the Company has chosen in reducing head-count in our Maintenance classifications. We are presently working with Company Leaders on other options that are available and to eliminate any reduction in our workforce here at this site. Do not hesitate to contact myself or one of our UAW Representatives with any questions or concerns regarding this issue.
In addition, our Philadelphia UAW Performance Incentive Program (PIP) for June 2020 yielded 5 days of a pay-out. Let’s continue our great work which should only increase this number.
Lastly, we will be offering Tee-shirts (Black) for sale with our UAW logo on the front, left of the shirt and the red, white, and blue American Flag on the back of the shirt. We have ordered sizes ranging from Small-5XL. Cost for these shirts will only be $10.00 per shirt regardless of size. They will be in stock and available later this week. You can go to our website, www.uawlocal1069.org to view the actual design of the shirt. Please see any one of your UAW Representatives, E.I. Facilitators, or contact your Union Hall to purchase a shirt.
FYI: Many employees send me emails to my Boeing email address which I only periodically check. Please forward any correspondence you may have for me to: michaeltolassi@yahoo.com. I will promptly return all emails sent to me at this address, speak to any employee via phone, and/or meet in person anytime.

In Solidarity,


Michael Tolassi
