NATCA’s Disaster Response Committee (DRC) is asking you for your help. This year continues a full court press on the lives of our membership. From wildfires on the West Coast, a derecho in the Midwest, and the Gulf Coast being battered from hurricanes and tropical storms, we are prepared to assist NATCA members and their family members.

NATCA established a disaster relief fund in 1992 in the wake of Hurricane Andrew in Florida. Following the devastating 2017 hurricane season, NATCA formed the DRC to manage the disaster relief fund and organize the relief process for NATCA members affected by a disaster. Due to the generosity of our membership, our fund has continued to grow and has provided assistance to those members affected when disaster strikes.

However, due to the extreme challenges of 2020, we need your help today to replenish funds used to help dozens of NATCA members this year. We have set a goal of raising $25,000 by the end of 1st quarter 2021 to replenish from the 2020 challenges.

We continue to highlight our union sisters and brothers who are also essential workers during the COVID-19 national emergency. Today we thank the members of the Marine Engineers' Beneficial Association (MEBA). MEBA is the nation's oldest maritime labor union, established in 1875. MEBA was NATCA’s parent organization upon the Union’s founding and first few years, providing assistance. MEBA represents a large and diverse mix of engineers and deck officers in all aspects of the maritime workforce, as well as shoreside professionals at ports, offices, and in the service industries. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected MEBA members immensely as many face unprecedented restrictions and hardships, including being unable to leave their ships even when in a port and waiting for months for replacement, as quarantining procedure slows the rotation of personnel. Read more about how MEBA has fought for its members during this year’s challenges: https://news.yahoo.com/ve-trapped-navy-ships-months-084653902.html

Women of the NNM: FacRep Megan Nowak (ZDV)

What made you decide to take on a leadership role?
I have always admired leaders who are inclusive. Knowing that I wanted everyone at ZDV to have their voice heard aided in the decision to run for FacRep. I want to find a spot for everyone within NATCA based on their interest.

What would you say to other people that want to get more involved but are intimidated or afraid to raise their hand?
Just dive in. The more voices we have involved, the better we are. Find someone you feel comfortable around and let your voice be heard. As the saying goes, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”

What’s the most interesting place you’ve ever been?
Botswana in Africa. I have never seen such an amazing night time sky.

What do you want to be remembered for?
Being empathetic and trying hard no matter what the situation is.

California, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington are enduring a fire season of historic proportions. Conditions have been hot, dry, and dangerous. Nearly 80 percent of the region is facing some level of drought, affecting 40 million people. The dry conditions, coupled with lightning storms, have led to some of the largest fires in both Colorado and California history.

Throughout this ordeal, aviation safety specialists have continued to work with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection and the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control. Local air traffic control facilities have set up temporary flight restrictions (TFRs) to keep general aviation and commercial airplanes safe from smoke obstruction and out of the way of airplanes that drop water and retardants to help contain the fires. https://www.natca.org/2020/10/28/colorado-members-keep-nas-safeduring-close-call-with-wildfires/

UPDATE: While the COVID-19 national emergency has stopped most activities everywhere in our country, NATCA members continue to provide essential service to flights across more than 29 million square miles of airspace. Air traffic controllers are a vital part of the fight against this disease, helping move necessary goods and emergency and medical supplies and equipment and even people, coast to coast, city to city. Otherwise — as all NATCA’s members know — we’re seeing less traffic at many facilities.

10/27/2020

Tamiami-Miami Executive ATCT (TMB) members Melchisedeck Fontilus and Marco Colon were best friends since Fontilus’s arrival at TMB in 2018. Two months ago, they bought a boat together and spent much of their free time on the water in South Florida.

But on Monday, Oct. 12, in a tragic accident near Haulover Beach between Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Fontilus got caught in a strong current while standing on a sandbar. Colon, who was on the boat nearby, jumped in to try and save Fontilus, but both men were pulled under water. They were rescued and taken to a hospital, but Fontilus passed away. Colon survived and is recovering.

Fontilus, who went by “Mel,” was 27. The NATCA family joins our brothers and sisters at TMB in mourning his passing.

*** Order by tomorrow to receive by Veterans Day. ***

With Veterans Day coming up, NATCA is offering a new T-shirt to honor members of our Union who are military veterans and support both the NATCA Charitable Foundation (NCF) and the Lone Survivor Foundation (LSF).

LSF was founded in 2010 by Marcus Luttrell, the only survivor of a 2005 Navy SEALs mission in Afghanistan. Luttrell’s Texas ranch was the center of his post-combat recovery. He wanted other military families to have the opportunity to step out of their daily routines and come to a place of peace; a place where they could obtain tools for healing while being surrounded by other people who understand them. LSF provides that opportunity while honoring the warriors that gave their lives in service to our country. LSF restores, empowers, and renews hope for wounded service members, veterans and their families through health, wellness, and therapeutic support.

LSF is one of the four charities that NATCA and NCF are spotlighting as part of the 18th Biennial Convention in Houston, May 25-27, 2021. Convention Committee member Lee Moore from Houston TRACON (I90), an Air Force veteran, stated, “The committee wanted to highlight Lone Survivor because it’s a local charity that helps veterans with PTSD. A large percentage of NATCA members are veterans, including 80 percent of the members at my facility. A majority of that 80 percent have been deployed. There’s a special connection of knowing what it’s like to be deployed and the potential mental fatigue and PTSD that goes with that. Lone Survivor stands out as an organization that we have more of a sentimental connection to, because a lot of us have been in those shoes.”

If you order by tomorrow, barring extraordinary postal delays, we expect you’ll receive your shirt by Veterans Day on Nov. 11. We will continue to take orders for the shirts through Veterans Day. Order your shirt from the NATCA store. https://www.natcastore.com/?s=veterans+day&post_type=product

10/25/2020

The 2020 hurricane season has been particularly devastating for significant parts of the Gulf Coast with numerous major storms. Hundreds of NATCA members live in these affected regions. Southwest Louisiana and Pensacola have been hit particularly hard this year. But NATCA members again rose to the occasion, keeping operations safe in the storms’ aftermath, showing their dedication to professionalism as essential employees.

Hurricane Laura made landfall in the Lake Charles, La., area at the end of August. Only six weeks later, Hurricane Delta made landfall in the same area. Both storms affected NATCA members from Beaumont, Texas, all the way to the New Orleans area.

Members from Lake Charles ATCT (LCH) – that is a proud 100% NATCA facility – were displaced more than once. First, Hurricane Laura took direct aim at their facility, damaging it and requiring the use of a mobile tower. "Our city, facility, and membership were devastated by the fifth most powerful hurricane to ever make landfall in the U.S.," said LCH FacRep Benjamin Turnipseede. "The tower cab was destroyed, and most floors had their windows blown out causing major damage." Then, Hurricane Delta forced a team of controllers to relocate to Houston Center (ZHU), again causing an uncertain situation for LCH members.

Ep22: Pensacola TRACON NATCA Member Works With Coast Guard Pilot to Save a Life

Listen to the Southern Region Archie League Medal of Safety Winners Podcast: It was like most any other ordinary summer afternoon in Pensacola, with a lot of weather, when Marcus Troyer plugged in for his shift at Pensacola TRACON (P31) shortly after 12:30 p.m. EDT. In the skies to the west, U.S. Coast Guard Lt. Commander Brian Hedges was the pilot and aircraft commander on an ordinary training mission in a newly-converted MH65E helicopter. But a short time later, Troyer and Hedges were joined in a search and rescue effort that was anything but ordinary and showcased the essential nature of their respective professions.

Thanks to their efforts, the life of the pilot of a Cessna 172 Skyhawk, Scott Jeffrey Nee, was saved after he crashed into the sandy bank of the Escambia River in a remote area of Jay, Fla., north of Pensacola near the Alabama border, and was seriously injured.

“They are heroes,” said the plane’s owner, Freddie McCall. “They saved a man’s life.”

If you are a Gmail user, to increase the likelihood that you will get news and updates in your email from our Union, NATCA's IT Committee recommends that you do the following. In Gmail, your inbox is separated into four general categories: primary, promotions, social, and updates. The primary tab is reserved for direct communication between you and your contacts. Promotions is where communications from large services will generally appear. NATCA uses Constant Contact for email communication with its members, so NATCA mail will arrive in the promotions tab of your Gmail inbox. Social is reserved for social media traffic, and the updates tab is meant to capture communication from services you use like online banking. Each tab is still a part of your inbox, but Gmail tries to clean things up for you by categorizing the large volume of mail you might receive.

If you want to make NATCA email messages show up in your primary tab, you can simply click and drag the message to the primary tab. Then click “yes” on the pop up in the bottom right.

#natcavotes who else voted?!
Union dues should be a tier system based on representation. For example c90 controllers should only pay $1 per year in dues.
VOTE TRUMP OUT IN NOVEMBER - HE’S A GRIM REAPER. TRAITOR, DICTATOR, ETC. 1.Trump the GRIM REAPER. Trump is responsible for hundreds of thousands of American deaths from the Covid 19 virus because he should have taken serious steps to get it under control, as other advanced nations have. At first he wanted to get the economy going rather than save lives, because that was his selling point for re-election. Now he is simply letting people die as cannon fodder TO SCARE PEOPLE FROM VOTING. His actions or lack thereof are “QUASI-GENOCIDAL ”, in that causing massive deaths by withdrawal of food supplies or water or emergency medical care or disease prevention is immoral and criminal. An example of this pattern was Stalin’s appropriation of Ukrainian grain in the 1930’s, which caused the death of millions of Ukrainians. 2. Trump the TRAITOR. Trump made a bargain with the devil, being Russia’s Putin, after they enabled the rebuilding of his fortune, such as it is, by way of investing in and financing his business interests. Some of this is on the record but complex, and much more is hidden in banking and tax records not available. In exchange for that and their help in getting him elected in 2016, Russia has had a free ride in their aggressions. If he got tough with Russia they would expose him and pull the rug on his house of cards business empire, which has excessive debt he can never repay 3. Trump uses and ABUSES HIS POWERS for personal and political gain only, treating this country and its 330 million people as a fiefdom.or real estate property. He ignores the Constitution at every turn. 4. Trump the LIAR. Almost every time Trump speaks, he lies, tens of thousands of lies during his Presidency. He has no credibility. For example, if he announces a Covid vaccine shortly before the election, people would be skeptical and not want to chance taking it. 5. Trump the RACIST. Beyond being a white supremacist, Trump uses racism to divide the country, exploiting racial fears and prejudices to carve out support from working class white people who are ironically being stepped on just like minorities. 6. He is a misogynist and disrespects women’s rights and family values including childcare and moral decency. 7. He PROMOTES VIOLENCE and DOMESTIC TERRORISM, including prompting his minions to amplify violence at street protests, caused by his own policies, and then blaming Democrats as a new distraction from the Covid. 8. He has NO EMPATHY, for the dead or dying victims of the Covid, of racial murders, of domestic terrorist murders, or of the millions losing their jobs or homes or going hungry. 9. He chips away at democracy one step at a time and is now pretty much a DICTATOR. But if he wins another time, he will become very much a dictator. He has trampled on and ignored the Constitution. 10 He has assumed legislative authority from Congress, legislating by EXECUTIVE FIAT. 11. He is PACKING THE COURTS, so that the judiciary would only be a rubber stamp of approval for his actions, right or wrong. 12. He pursues VOTER SUPPRESSION in many ways, in order to steal his and other elections. 13. He has openly stated his intention to DESTROY SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE, a shocking plan that would leave people on the streets, ill and hungry. 14. He has appointed acting cabinet members and other officials to CIRCUMVENT the required Senate APPROVAL PROCESS. 15. He has developed a dangerous CULT following via his bellicose salesmanship- not unlike Hitler’s, which could lead to MAJOR CIVIL UNREST whether he wins or loses the election. 16. He STONEWALLS or outright refuses to comply with CONGRESSIONAL OVERSIGHT.. 17. He is essentially a CRIMINAL, with a lifetime trail of FRAUD, business and TAX CHEATING. 18. He is INCOMPETENT, aside from all else, and could not succeed in running the country in any case, as he lacks the concentration, doesn’t read, and has NO WORK ETHIC. 19. He has gone BANKRUPT several times It is no surprise how he has MISMANAGED THE ECONOMY 20. Trump has the personality of a SCHOOLYARD BULLY, and a nasty temper, no negotiating or diplomatic skills. 21. Has been described as like a MOB BOSS, demanding ABSOLUTE LOYALTY and no dissenting opinions from his staff. But he has no loyalty to his staff, whom he fires at will by tweet. 22. Trump will STOP AT NOTHING TO WIN, INCLUDING SABOTAGING THE POSTAL SERVICE to keep people from voting by mail, though this would create havoc in all the other ways mail is vital to Americans, He is likely to refuse to leave office if he loses the election, just like the dictator he already is in a sense. 23. Trump’s 2017 TAX CUT was a TRILLION DOLLAR GIFT TO HIS RICH FRIENDS and himself, with unusual SPECIAL CHANGES TO THE TAX CODE FAVORING HIS REAL ESTATE PROPERTIES 24. Trump opposes even minimal gun control laws, such as background checks and limits to military grade weapons. 25. Trump endangers the environment, creating negative climate changes and health issues. 26. Trump has diminished our place as a world leader in democratic ideals and as a bulwark against Russian and other threats to world peace, and made America under Trump a laughing stock. 27. Trump has not “drained the swamp” as he pretended he would, but has brought corruption to the worst level in our history. 28. Trump has made a joke out of his “Build A Wall” program, proving it impossible to build and easy for people to get over or around. He and his wealthy corporate donors have actually tacitly supported and used illegal immigrants to keep wages down on American workers. 29. Trump has fought in court and otherwise to eliminate Obamacare and pre-existing conditions, the safety net for millions of Americans, and failed to combat high prescription drug prices. 30. Our economy is in the worst state since the Great Depression of almost 100 years ago. It is not an asterisk incidental to a temporary glitch from a virus, but rather a direct result of his deliberate decision to ignore the disease he perceived as a threat to his re-election - which had the effect of both worsening the economy and the pandemic. We now suffer the compound damage of a worsening economy and pandemic, not to mention intense civil unrest. . In short, Trump played the country as a personal project under his control, holding our welfare hostage to his re-election campaign, which has been his main focus since taking office. Imagine what would happen to our Democracy and our chance to return to normalcy if he wins the election in November. This is why it is so vital that we all vote. If, as it has been said, only 60% of the electorate voted in 2016, and most of the nonvoting 40% were arguably would-be Democrat voters - let’s say 3 out of 4, then 60% of all potential voters were Democrats and Hillary would have won by a 60-40 landslide. That works out, on a sample of 100, to about 30 of the first 60, plus 30 the missing 40, for a total of 60 of 100. Think of it, people, with all the voter suppression, cheating and Russian interference, Democrats would still have won handily with a greater turnout. SO, WHAT TO DO?. VOTE LIKE YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT, WHICH FOR SOME PEOPLE IT DOES, AND FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES AND THAT OF OUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN, AND FOR THE FUTURE OF THIS COUNTRY. IT HAS TO BE TAKEN VERY SERIOUSLY. SO VOTE EARLY, ORGANIZE AND HELP YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS AND VOTE. YOU SNOOZE YOU LOSE. OK TO SHARE
So you can get covid by talking to airplanes or sitting in the breakroom. but your immune when eating lunch? or getting a haircut is that correct?
When the BLM shirt was originally on sale you clarified where the money was going to. I believe it was to Black Girls Code. Can you update on where the money goes to now? Most of us DO NOT support the BLM organization but of course support the black lives matter message. This would put at ease a lot of tension growing within the members (just read the comments... Or not they're awful). Thanks
Well, COVID did away with any vacation plans I had this year. I have cancelled everything I can, but I have a dinner reservation that can't be cancelled. I have dinner reservations for two in Chicago September 15th at 6:30 at Topolobampo. It is a Michelin star restaurant and perfect for a dinner date. If you are interested let me know and I will transfer the reservation to you. It is already paid in full minus gratuity and beverages.
I have a question. How to ARTCC controllers get their delay information passed on? Back in the day (I retired from ZDC in 2008) and it was still being done on paper, to OS, TMU. Thanks in advance for this and all you still do.
I'd like to know why the state requires essential employees (includes air traffic controllers) to wear a mask at work, but you guys or the FAA say it's not mandatory?
Take what you can use from this... 😁🙄🙄
From Hawai’i but applies everywher. Our NATCA family coul be part of the first wave. If the Government deems you an essential worker -starting with medical and first responders and their support staff- you should have the option of staying in one of our dying-for-business local hotels. I said OPTION. Go home and visit in a safe way if you want but be able to relax and sleep in an isolated environment where you’re not sharing furniture and facilities with others. Reduce risk for families/community/roommates and inject Government money into the economy, which we have to do anyway. Let’s start with the state and hopefully it becomes a national program. Any worker deemed essential, regardless of who they work for should be allowed to do the same but let’s start with those most likely to come into direct contact with the infected. Let’s get Governor David Ige to start here in Hawai’i. Start by filling Trump hotels to appropriate occupancy. That will get his attention and national press and he’ll be all for it. Gotta do whatever it takes. If you think this is a good idea, please share with someone who has the ear of someone who has the ear of somebody “important.”
