MEC CODE-A-PHONE UPDATE
March 6, 2003
This is Roy Freundlich with a US Airways MEC update for Thursday, March 6, with one new item.
The MEC reconvened its special meeting today and took action on the following issues:
The MEC passed a resolution appointing Steve Smyser as Chairman of the ALPA Joint Implementation Review Committee and Chip Mayer as a member of the Committee. The JIRC is a committee made up of Company and ALPA representatives that was established in the second Restructuring Agreement to jointly approve all implementation steps of certain scheduling issues. The MEC has authorized and encouraged the JIRC to utilize any and all ALPA assets, including members of other committees, advisors, and/or other pilot volunteers, in the performance of their duties.
In response to pilots wanting to volunteer for CRAF flying who had not previously signed up to participate via the winterization exam, and in response to the US Airways'' Flight Management and Human Resources departments erroneously stating that ALPA will not allow additional pilots to be added to the CRAF list, the MEC passed a resolution stating that it has no objection to pilots being added to the CRAF flying list as of the date they inform Flight Operations.
After receiving a report from the Jets for Jobs Coordinator and the Grievance Committee on the seniority protocols involved in the APL list, the MEC endorsed for both Mesa Airlines and Midway Airlines the Jets for Jobs APL Overview as presented by the Jets for Jobs Coordinator, which provides for APL seniority for the filling of captain and first officer vacancies. US Airways pilots will be governed by the applicable policies, practice, and labor agreement of Mesa and Midway, including monthly bidding seniority among pilots flying US Airways codeshare jet flying.
Retired pilots addressed the MEC on a lump sum distribution grievance concerning issues that were also brought before the bankruptcy court by separate counsel, and asked the MEC to continue to support their issues during the grievance process. MEC members stated they would fully support the independently filed grievance. Recent lump sum distributions were denied to approximately 18 pilots because of the Company''s actions seeking distress termination of the plan and associated regulatory concerns.
The meeting adjourned at 1:30 this afternoon.
Please remember we have 1,827 pilots on furlough.
Thank you for listening.

The JIRC is a cooperative effort that will pick the "Pref Bid" provider and work together on integrating the new system into US' IT platform by June 2004, per the ALPA supplemental restructuring agreement.
