AT MY Z, we had a zoom meeting saying that the recall process will begin for people who have had the vaccine + two weeks (since second dose or JJ). At this point they will be able to start training. Supposedly if you choose not to get the vaccine you will just be recalled at a later time that is unknown currently.

I think the people that don’t get vaxxed are gonna get pwnd and sent to the back of the line

Oh my stars, more free time off? 😂

So was the vaccine override a regional decision or national? Seems strange some people have received multiple correspondence about it from both management and NATCA and other people haven’t heard a thing.
How long have you been in the agency? This is standard practice on pretty much any subject.

The union sends out national emails on random crap all the time tho.

And I’ve been in 2 years. Only 12 months till that 1% agency contribution is vested baby!!!
They want to give their reps time to get a plan in place with management before they get flooded with emails asking what’s going on (I would guess). Maybe this Friday they will announce. That seems to be pretty common maybe.

My place didn’t waste any time. Got a heads up from local NATCA that this might be happening on Tuesday and then got the call from management yesterday to give 7 days notice, start next Wednesday. CPC-IT been home since the beginning.

If this is true, the FAA will have a training delay grievance nightmare on their hands

That’s probably their plan, if they like excused leave they can sit on it for six more months, if they really wanted to start training they would have made the sacrifice and gotten vaxed.

What do you mean? Cus they didn’t let people train for a year? Lol
My prediction: anyone who was forced to sit at home for a year and faces a TRB down the road will get additional hours. Even if the trainee sucks, no way the agency can prove the COVID delay didn’t have an effect.

Fair point, but that applied to every trainee. The vaccination requirement for training would exclude some people from returning to training and would give others an advantage. The stupid part about all of this is we’re still allowed to work as D-Sides, but we can’t train. It makes 0 sense

They aren’t excluded. They can get vaccinated.
