GOOD LUCK, KYLE!
Fellow DFW Pilots,
Captain Kyle Flynn will make the transition to council 114 later this month as he begins his new position in the Envoy Training Center. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Captain Flynn for his dedication and service as the LEC 083 First Officer Representative and Vice-Chairman. His contributions have been significant and are appreciated. If you see Kyle on the line or in the training center, be sure to thank him for his service as a volunteer.
Congratulations in your new position, Kyle!
LEC 083 FIRST OFFICER REPRESENTATIVE POSITION OPEN
With Captain Flynn’s transition, we will need a volunteer to fulfill the First Officer Representative and Vice-Chairman positions on DFW’s Local Executive Council. We will hold an LEC 083 Meeting on April 28th to nominate and elect an Interim First Officer Representative. The elected candidate will serve in this role immediately following the interim election on a temporary basis until a regular nomination and election is held. Though it may seem odd, the ALPA Constitution and By Laws requires both the interim and regular nominations/elections process to occur due to the timing of the open position.
In the upcoming weeks, LEC 083 members will receive nominations balloting letters mailed to their homes soliciting nominations for the regular nomination of the First Officer Representative position (term ending 02/28/18). The regular nomination of the First Officer Representative position will be tallied on April 28th at the LEC 083 Meeting and the regular election will take place shortly after via electronic means.
Serving as the First Officer Representative and Vice-Chairman for your pilot group comes with its share of duties and responsibilities, including representing the interests of the First Officers of our local council. LEC 083 First Officers in good standing are eligible to serve and are welcomed to run for this elected position.
Please contact your LEC 083 Leadership if you seek additional information on volunteering.
UPCOMING LEC 083 MEETING ON 4-28-2017
All LEC 083 members in good standing are invited to the LEC 083 Meeting scheduled on Friday, April 28th, 2017. The meeting will be held at the DFW Airport Grand Hyatt (Terminal D) beginning at 10AM. Parking at the hotel will be validated. Refreshments will be provided and family members are welcome to attend.
In addition to fulfilling the First Officer Representative position, your LEC 083 Leadership Team will provide updates on the status of current negotiations, monthly schedules, flow through, EMB-145 training in France, management update and discuss concerns over recent safety issues and contract violations. Other items we will seek specific membership direction on will include soft landing programs for pilots of other airlines, “401(k) default contributions,” and “an ability to return to Envoy.”
We encourage all pilots to attend if possible to provide thoughts and feedback to your local representatives.
If you plan to attend, please send an RSVP to ENY083@alpa.org so we can more accurately gauge attendance. Also, if you would like to add an item to the agenda, please send that request with specifics to ENY083@alpa.org ahead of time.
