The Company Has Determined

Brothers & Sisters

The company has determined an employee’s value, this determination in notably not an employee’s geographic value.
Apparently having determined their bankruptcy imposed concessionary contract along with the imposed amendment concessions, employees have not yet given enough or been through enough.

Now the company selectively gives some employees a geographic premium but most of their employee’s receive nothing.

08/03/2018 Letter to Membership

Brothers and Sisters

The company has received the results of their survey they asked all employees to participate in earlier this year. Well the results for Aircraft Maintenance and Related did not favor the results they were expecting; instead they were unfavorable for many departments within our work groups.

We feel that the Envoy motto is “IF THEIR NOT HAPPY, JUST BUY THEM PIZZA”. Pizza don’t pay the bills and we’re all tired of PIZZA! Continue reading
