Bereavement Committee CBA Requests

These are necessary changes that we seek to achieve with our next contract:

1.) Amend existing language in CBA 13.E.
2.) Increase in life insurance payout including a proportionate increase for hostile area flying.
3.) A continuation of healthcare with no change in premium for surviving family, for no less than two years after the pilot 's death.
4.) Convert all remaining sick-bank to bereavement pay when the death of a pilot occurs.

Bereavement Leave - CBA Section 13.E., there is room for improvement to increase the leave time from four days to a greater amount (at the very least, seven) with CRT protection. Under our current CBA, Bereavement Leave is financially punitive. Our Bereavement Committee

This was a gain over the previous CBA, but continues to fall short of the cost of living increase. Keeping in mind that our subsequent CBA might be delayed for years when our next CBA becomes amendable, we should seek a basic payout of $1 million and proportionate amount for hostile flying. Many of our pilots are married and have several children. They are often the sole provider for the household. A middle to late middle aged spouse with children are often left destitute with our current amount.

The premiums need to be covered by the Company if the pilot is out on long term medical. The FO Kilgore tragedy is a great example why. Mark Kilgore was out on Long Term Medical when he died. He was receiving COBRA, but somehow the paperwork to continue his AD&D and Life Insurance was “overlooked.” The Company claims that they never received the completed forms. The Kilgore family stated that Mark did not or would not neglect to return the forms needed to continue the benefits. For those who are familiar with his circumstances, it was obvious that in his later days he was very sick and incapable of managing his affairs. His family did not have enough money to bury him. They were left impoverished. The basic premiums for AD&D and Life Insurance should be covered up until the end of the pilot 's employment regardless of his COBRA

    Those who returned home after fighting in the war who did not suffer a physical casualty suffered from mental and emotional instability. Although Paul did not leave the war for good when he went back home to visit, his actions and thoughts showed that he was greatly affected by his experiences; he seemed to already be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This is evident because he felt depressed and was unable to stifle a smile when he finally saw his family again. Moreover, he felt he had lost connection with his mother who he failed to feel comfortable speaking with.

    By the NCEP table 330.10, about 50 years ago, the average cost for tuition, fees, room and board at all postsecondary institutions was $9,507. Now, the average cost has risen to about $21,003 per year. Not only is the movement supported by the numbers, but it may reasonably benefit our society as a whole. A lowered cost of postsecondary education means that education will be more easily accessible to more people, who may go on to contribute great things to our country. Yet, these dreams are limited by one’s own financial setting, and the resulting debt puts many significantly behind in their life.The ability to learn and further one’s own education shouldn’t come at the price of a fulfilling life.…

    From the very beginning of the other Wes Moore’s life, he has been let down by his parents and has led a troubling life.

    The doctors said the dialysis would be in violation of his DNR papers so they were not at liberty to do it. They also said his body was much too weak to withstand all the pressure on his body.
