Council 27 - Boston
LEC Vice President
Craig MacInnes, Jr.
A slow start out of the gate. (Sep 18, 2018)
Well, we hoped for a decent start to the full merge of our work groups, and then today happened, or at least some of it did, The line awards were visible,and then they were gone, and now they are back. Trading has started in some bases, as others do not even know what lines they have been awarded, In other words, it isn't going as well as we were led to believe that it would.
The MEC is very irate, as all of you should be too. The time-line that everyone was told to follow has fallen apart, and trip trading has been delayed. It is expected to be up an running tomorrow. During our MEC conference call this evening, some Councils reported individual cases of trades being denied or rejected because of programming errors, and not due to any error on the flight attendants part, or any actual legality. Hopefully these will be rare instances, but if it happens to anyone in Boston, please take screen shots and send it in an email to any Council 27 Officer.
There will likely be a new time-line because of the delay from the company in completing the awards and trading sequence. You will be receiving updates as we become aware of any time-line changes,
It is all quite frustrating, and we will get beyond this. The MEC will remain after the company on your behalf, and you will be kept in the loop on all progress, or lack thereof. For now, get some sleep, and your typing fingers will be well rested and ready when the Electronic Bulletin Board fully opens for business, I apologize that this has not gone according to the plan we all practiced on and read about until our eyes were blurry, but knowing how Boston Flight Attendants are, we will adept at all the tricks of the trading before you know it.
