Ask Congressional Leadership to Save Hundreds of Thousands of Airline Jobs

In March, as U.S. COVID-19 cases began rising exponentially, Congress rose to the occasion by enacting the CARES Act to provide assistance to tens of millions of Americans who found their financial security, if not their health, directly imperiled by the pandemic.

Among other things, the CARES Act created the Payroll Support Program (PSP), under which the Treasury Secretary issued $32 billion in grants to airlines and their contractors exclusively to keep their workers on the payroll through September 30, 2020.

But while time marches on, so does the pandemic, Airline workers are facing the worst crisis by far in the industry’s history. Last Wednesday, a major airline put 36,000 workers across the country on notice that they could be furloughed on or after October 1. Other carriers have issued and will issue similar notices.

Please ask your member of Congress to join House Transportation and Infrastructure Chairman Peter DeFazio (D-OR) on a bipartisan letter to House and Senate Leadership, urging them to extend the PSP authorities in the CARES Act through March 31, 2021, and save hundreds of thousands of frontline airline workers’ jobs.

A message from president Gula

April 17, 2020

Indeed these are tough times for all. We are now grieving the loss of yet 2 more members to this insidious pandemic. I pray there will be no more. It is difficult for me and I am certain for you sisters and brothers, to get a firm grip on my emotions. We can't even grieve as we are accustomed. Please understand that it has taken me the better part of the day just to get to this point. The board met yesterday, virtually, and decided that we would purchase a memorial tree in honor of those members who have passed. It will be a lasting memory and means of condolence moving forward. We decided further that once we are beyond this, we will have a memorial service at the hall for our fallen members. Please continue to stay safe and pray we are beyond this soon.

I hope all are coping as best they can. In lieu of our regular meeting today, the e-board met, and I am pleased to announce that all members of United Lodge Local 914, who are in good standing and electing to take the company, offered leave of absence(COLA), will be exempted from their dues until their return. No back dues or reinstatement will be incurred upon return. Again, this applies to regular members in good standing. (i.e., those in objector status remain responsible for their agency fees.)
I would also encourage all to remember that our IAMAW EAP is available always and in particular during these unforeseen and stressful times. Please pass this info to others who may not be on Facebook and also share our website www.ewrlocallodge914.com with them so that they may also be informed. On behalf of the e-board, we pray that all will return to normal soon.

In Solidarity, I remain Fraternally yours,
Bill Gula President

Upon consultation with GLR Edison Fraser, we have been granted a dispensation for our Local Lodge Meeting this Wednesday 9/16. We will do all we can to reschedule but given the current pandemic situation, the E-board concurs that to have the regularly scheduled meeting would be contrary to a proactive stance against this horrible situation that is encumbering the globe, nationally, and of course locally. I pray that all will adhere to current CDC advice and help us all to stem the tide. Please pass this information to any members who may not yet be on our FB page. The boards will be updated tomorrow. Please remain vigilant and continue to monitor this page for further announcements.
In Solidarity I remain Fraternally yours,
Bill Gula President
United Lodge Local 914
