Brother's and Sister's,
it has come to our attention that the carrier has started paying special attention to our 8 hour call! Every time someone lays off after the turn is locked, an email is generated and sent out to local management, upper management and Labor Relations!
Everyone needs to start paying close attention on when they lay off in the future if we want to keep the 8 hour call.
If you are locked, you need to stay marked up unless a you have a dire emergency.
If you need to layoff, it needs to be done before your turn gets locked.
If it looks like you might get called on your rest, you must seriously think about doing something at the time of your tie up.
This is very serious if we want to try and keep the 8 hour call.
It is up to us to do what we can to help ourselves, the target is now on the 8 hour call, do your part in keeping it.
