Brothers and Sisters, September 16, 2020
Today at 1700, Election America conducted the ballot count on ratification of LOA # 8. The Local received the results at 1720. The Letter of Agreement was approved by an overwhelming 91.5% of the membership, with 87.3% of eligible members voting.
This process was aligned with the goal of your Executive Board - to let our pilots’ voices be heard, and to determine their own destiny. We also wanted to be sure there was a very simple and clearly defined sunset provision. This was to ensure we protect the improvements we have made to our CBA, and to preserve our position in future negotiating cycles. Although the ratification vote has concluded, there is much work to be done to implement several of the changes. Regardless of your personal support for merits of LOA # 8, we now need to come together as we are stronger and more effective when we are unified.
