Seattle MEC Regular Meeting
The Delta MEC met in Seattle for the June Regular MEC Meeting. In attendance at the meeting were all your LEC reps as well as MEC committee chairs. These Regular Meetings give the MEC committees an opportunity to update the MEC reps (and all pilots) on their works-in-progress and upcoming efforts. Notable topics covered included: preparations for upcoming Section 6 negotiations, scope challenges and opportunities, scheduling issues and much more. The MEC also works to review resolutions, give direction (as needed) and discuss current issues. The meeting summary, committee reports, resolutions and presentations can be found on the MEC Secretary’s page at alpa.org/dal. All pilots are invited to the attend these meetings.
Pilot Unity Building Event
The Delta Pilot Network (DPN) coordinated a Pilot Unity Building (PUB) event in conjunction with the June meeting to invite line pilots to meet their reps, committee members and MEC leadership. The PUB was held at Rein Haus German biergarten in downtown Seattle on Wednesday June 6. Approximately 120 Delta pilots and their families joined the MEC in bocce ball and enjoyed delicious German food.
