We have received a flood of comments from members about the revised Premium Economy service standards (13DEC19 MMN, 15JAN20 globe bulletin). When taken in full context of the PY position, which may include float duties in J and for boarding, these extra tasks are nearly impossible to achieve.
The Union is very concerned by the company’s non-stop quest to add service without increasing crew complement and the negative effects its members report that this is having on them.
How can you help us represent you?
- Forward your general concerns and comments to email@example.com , firstname.lastname@example.org and copy the union at email@example.com.
- Be sure to file a health and safety complaint e-report if you believe this process introduces hazards to the workplace:
- Aeronet > Safety > File a report/SIMS
- We suggest typing your complaint out, and copying it into the system as there have been issues lately. If you cannot submit online, email your safety manager directly firstname.lastname@example.org and explain the system would not work. Be sure to copy the union at email@example.com .
As members you should know that rushing is often found to be a contributing cause of onboard injuries. Your safety management will ALWAYS say that you should never rush. But how is that possible when the entire service is engineered AS a mad dash? How are our members expected to juggle these contradictory messages – especially with onboard managers present and timing them?
Report to the company and keep your Union in the loop. We’re all in this together and we’re only as strong as each other.
