Default FDX ALPA recall info missing from website

I was just on the Alpa website and the information on Rep recall procedures is gone. It was under the LEC tab but I can't find it now. Did it get moved or did it get removed? I think this is prudent info that should be reposted on the website for all to read and get educated. What would be the purpose of removal? We want transparency from the company, shouldn't we expect the same from us? With the meeting in Feb, I think this is kind of important information!

MEC Policy manual is on the MEC page. ALPA Bylaws PDF on ALPA page. I'm drunk and dumb so it took me 3 minutes to find it.

Wow, thanks! It was right there! Two documents the crew force navigates on a daily basis! After looking in the FEC Policy manual and reading page 9, it directed me to the Alpa Constitution and Bylaws. Which after reading section 13 then directed me to Article III 2F to finally get the answer. Thanks for all of your help! That was soooo much easier than clicking on the LEC page and reading a single source document (that was already posted) of very pertinent information for an upcoming MEC meeting.

Gotta wonder why the information would be removed unless we are purposefully trying to keep many uninformed!

Glad to help, now the real question is why are those "Little Birds" hovering over Poplar and Kirby?

I posted this on a different thread....I think it is germane now here on this thread. Block members who have a rep up for recall please read this. You might be a member who just coasts....if you are, dont ever complain again.

"Some how the MEC/LEC meetings which will be germane for the recall efforts on CB, TH and TC were scheduled over the Valentines Day time frame........Go figure. I thought it might be helpful to outline some of the relevant block member options. The process demands that during the appropriate meeting that a motion be proposed, seconded, discussed and then voted on (simple majority) on the recall of said MEC members. If a block member cannot be present for the meeting and vote, then he/she may designate (in writing) a member who may cast their vote via proxy. The proxy must be hand written (not printed out on computer and signed). It must specify the member who is casting the vote, who the member is designating as their proxy and specifically what the vote is; i.e. "I vote to recall Capt. So and So" A member present for the meetings can carry, present and cast up to 3 proxy votes for other members in addition to their own vote. So, in short an organized block could send 25 members to a meeting and effectively cast 100 votes. At LEAST that will be required to accomplish an effective recall. If, at the meeting the members present (including proxies) result in a majority recall then the MEC Chair must notify ALPA National of the results. National will then send notification and Recall ballots to ALL relevant block members for recall determination. The process is long and decidedly difficult. But if a block is organized, determined and resolved the dominoes will fall like clockwork. So there you have it.........

Thanks FL for the info! I still think they should repost on the union website since it is union business. Not all lurk here. It was a simple explanation for those of us that are slower than the drunk and dumb.
