Single Point Communication

Show Your Support for 2018: Sunrise Or Sunset?

As you are now all aware, the 2018: Sunrise or Sunset? communications campaign is now underway. Your MEC launched this initiative both to request that the company communicate its future business plans with us, as well as to communicate with you our pilot membership, the uncertainty that exists here at Air Wisconsin.

Starting soon, you will have the opportunity to show your solidarity with your fellow pilots by picking up iPad cloths, pens, and other items at various times and locations in the coming months.  You will also be receiving a bag tag in the mail we are asking you to display in support of the campaign. All these items ask our management the same question: whether 2018 is the beginning or the end for our carrier once its current agreement with American Airlines expires.

Next week will be your first opportunity to pick up 2018: Sunrise Or Sunset? materials at our Coffee & Conversation events.  Former ARW MEC Chairman and ALPA National SPSC Member Richard Swindell, as well as MEC Chairman Chris Suhs and MEC ST Graham Hoff-Downing, will be on hand as well as various members of the MEC and other committees to answer questions and discuss career options outside of Air Wisconsin.

For pilots unable to meet directly with our pilot leaders or for those desiring an additional opportunity to talk about the future of Air Wisconsin, the MEC will be hosting two all-pilot conference calls in May as well.

We encourage all pilots to help us carry the message to our management group to simply share with us their concrete plan for the future.  We don’t want to hear ambiguous comments about “industry opportunities,” or nebulous remarks about being “aggressive about staying in business;” these are just platitudes designed to distract attention from the fact that –Air Wisconsin has not secured any new flying business in more than a decade.  So join your MEC and fellow pilots in the discussion, help us let the company know that we deserve honest answers about our future with this company so that we may all be in a position to look for industry opportunities and be aggressive about preserving our careers and livelihoods.

In Unity,

ARW MEC
