Every month we update you on the highlights of what’s happening in your union.

  1. Continued Hurricane Support and Recovery

The active hurricane season continued in September with both Irma and Maria affecting Delta pilots and their families. Support is available for those impacted through the Delta MEC’s Furlough/Emergency Relief Fund and ALPA’s Pilots-4-Pilots Fund. These events are a reminder to review and update your contact information on the Delta MEC website via My Page. ALPA uses this information to get in touch with you during emergencies and significant safety events.

  1. Training Days Off Reminder

With the holidays approaching and a vast amount of training still being scheduled as result of the May AE, a reminder from the Scheduling Committee highlighted how to request days off during training. Requests must be submitted by the 5th of the month, two months prior to training. Requests can be made at any time, currently through May 2018. Please note that these are requests only, not guaranteed days off. Look to PWA Section 11 F. 2. b. for the controlling language.

  1. Delta MEC Website Pilot Tools Redesign

The Pilot Tools page on the MEC Website was enhanced and new tools were added during September. The page now includes pay and seniority calculators, along with pay tables and retirement data. A tabbed layout makes it easy to switch between tools and calculators, all in a simple, easy-to-read format. Further enhancements to Pilot Tools are planned for the coming months.
