Clarification on Motion

Brothers & Sisters,

Below are 3 attachments pertaining to the USPS issue we are dealing with and a message from Air Division Systems Coordinator Gary Peterson below:

In NY at Local 501 pertaining to LGA/JFK FSC we have been informed that there would be no attempts to drug test our members in December 2018. Starting January 1st, 2019 unless we resolve this issue with the company, their intent will be to notify a small group of our members that they will have 30 days to comply with a drug test or finger print process.

Your Local 501 Executive Board and International are diligently working to resolve this issue and anyone from Local 501 that the company plans to move forward with starting January 1st, 2019 will be informed by one of our Officers who will discuss the matter with you.

At this time from what we do know, at 501 the targeted list is less than 2% of our FSC NY membership.  Also, to be clear Local 501 is in no way on board with the company’s intended plans at this time and as always we will communicate with our members as accurate and timely as possible pertaining to Union information.

Please see the below message from International Vice President & Air Division Systems Coordinator Gary Peterson:

Just a point of clarification to correct what was posted on social media about the Fleet Service lawsuit.

We are simply withdrawing the motion for appearance this week, not the complaint. We can always re-file the motion to get on the calendar. This is part of the idiosyncratic part of Chicago federal court procedures. The only way to get it off the calendar is to withdraw the motion.  We still have the complaint and we won’t dismiss the complaint until we have resolution.
