Congratulations to Retired NATCA Active Volunteers (RNAV) member and NATCA’s National Office Technology Representative Matt Sullivan on being elected to sit on the Executive Board of the Northern Virginia Labor Federation (NoVA Labor) of the Virginia AFL-CIO.

Northern Virginia has been one of NATCA’s Boots On The Ground (BOTG) locations for many years, which has allowed NATCA members to slowly grow their leadership and activism within NoVA Labor, both during the BOTG working cycle, and in the months outside program work.

NoVA Labor is comprised of 72 local unions and approximately 56,000 union members. Sullivan’s two-year term on the executive board began Jan. 1.

“I am extremely humbled and honored to serve in this position,” said Sullivan. “The work of our Union is bigger than one person, and I am grateful to be able to pass along NATCA's message of solidarity while serving in this position.”

In 1994, Patrice Clarke Washington became the first Black woman captain for a major U.S. airline. In 1982, Washington was one of the first Black women to graduate from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University with an aeronautical degree. After graduating, Washington went back to her birthplace, the Bahamas, to work as a pilot. Washington joined UPS in 1988. At the time, only 59 of 1,650 UPS pilots were Black and 86 were women. Washington was the only one who was both. #BlackHistoryMonth https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-xpm-1995-02-12-9502120075-story.html

NATCA brothers and sisters share a strong bond, and when a member is struggling and in need of help, the Voluntary Leave Transfer Program (VLTP) is a great way to help a member carry their burden. The VLTP was created to help an employee who has exhausted available leave and has a personal or family member with a medical emergency.

ICYMI: Frontline transportation workers, including NATCA's own Jenny Benjamin (Denver Centennial ATCT, APA), on Feb. 4, 2021, shared their experiences working on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic and what they need from Congress to keep themselves, their passengers, and their families safe. The videos were part of an effort by the Transportation Trades Dept. (TTD), AFL-CIO, of which NATCA is a proud member.

“I work in a small round tower about 14 feet across," Benjamin says in the video. "At times, there are almost 10 people in that small space.

"Despite our efforts to mitigate exposure, we’ve seen the virus affect 300 FAA facilities nationwide.”

Dallas/Fort Worth TRACON (D10) Vice President and Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) member Jason Potter: “We have all found ourselves overwhelmed throughout the COVID-19 pandemic with an abundance of information and wondering what new policies will be enacted each day that will forever change our lives. There has not been much time or consideration given to what we should think, how we should feel as individuals and as a profession, or how we can find positive outcomes in a difficult situation.”

“It is extremely possible that the changes to the holiday season, forced by the pandemic, intensified feelings of both sadness and isolation. Tremendous challenges coupled with constant adapting can lead to fatigue and frustration. Whether you are having a bad day and you need to vent or are in an overwhelming cycle of anxiety and negativity that you cannot seem to break, CISM is ready to help!

“Please remember that your CISM team is made up of your peers, aviation safety professionals just like you, who know what it is like to balance the demands of the job and life outside the walls of our respective facilities. There is no shame in asking for help. It is not a sign of weakness rather a sign that you are human.

“I encourage every one of us to check in with one another and be kind to ourselves. Asking someone if they are OK and exercising self-care are great ways to show support. We truly do not know what a person is going through until we ask. That one question has the power to change someone’s life forever. If anyone is struggling or just needs to talk, please reach out!”

Today, NATCA recognizes and honors one of its first Black members, retired member Kyle “Kj” Johnson. Johnson, a NATCA charter member who was heavily involved in organizing the Union in the mid-1980s, was born and raised in Oxford, Ohio, along with his older brother and two younger sisters.

He said, “As we embark on another month of Black History Month, I encourage you to celebrate our (NATCA’s) diversity and inclusivity. In the early years, it was not always easy or comfortable to be the only one or the rare one, but NATCA gave me a safe home. NATCA gives you the forum where your voice carries as much weight as any other—a place where opposing views are encouraged and valued.”

Two-time Golden Globe nominee and SAG Ensemble winner Dennis Quaid will star in MGM and LightWorkers’ airplane survival drama, On a Wing and a Prayer. The screenplay is based on a NATCA President’s Award and Archie League Medal of Safety-winning event in which passenger Doug White received life-saving assistance from NATCA members at Fort Myers ATCT (RSW) and Miami Center (ZMA) on Easter Sunday 2009. Thanks to their expert assistance, White was able to take over the controls of his own plane, a King Air, from pilot Joe Cabuk who died shortly after departure.

Marlon Dewitt Green was an African-American pilot whose landmark U.S. Supreme Court case in 1963 helped to dismantle racial discrimination in the airline industry, leading to the hiring of David Harris the following year as the first African-American pilot for a major airline.

On his initial application in 1957 to Continental Airlines, Green left the race box unchecked in fear of discriminating practices. He made it to the final round of interviews in which he had the most flight experience amongst his counterparts, yet was the only one to not be offered a position. The U.S. Surpremse Court ruled in his favor, leading to Continental employing Green, with whom he flew from 1965 to 1978. #flyfortheculture #blackhistorymonth

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.

02/09/2021

#BlackHistoryMonth is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans, recognizing their central role in U.S. history. In 1976, President Gerald Ford officially recognized Black History Month, calling on the public to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of Black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” Every American president since then has designated February as Black History Month. The celebration also has received official recognition from other countries around the world. Check your inbox for the latest Insider and follow NATCA social media throughout the month for updates highlighting the achievements of Black Americans in aviation, in labor, and in our Union, as our #NATCAfamily celebrates #BHM. ✊✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿

Winter weather has the potential to significantly disrupt air traffic operations, yielding flight delays, diversions, and cancellations. Effectively managing adverse winter weather conditions requires collaboration in a complex decision-making environment — a daunting challenge that NATCA members are always ready to face with professionalism and dedication. Saginaw Tri-City ATCT (MBS) member Dion Johnson took this photo of a snowy MBS, as featured in our NATCA 2021 calendar.

Through Solidarity, Pandemic Not Allowed to Delay Final Holiday Package Push - NATCA

It was Dec. 23, the date of the largest movement of boxes to get to their destination in time for Christmas, and UPS was planning a busy overnight push into and out of its Louisville Standiford (SDF) hub. But a positive COVID-19 case at Indianapolis Center (ZID), with a resulting need for cleaning on the mid shift, created a concern for UPS about the effect on its flights.

Good collaboration was needed between NATCA and the Federal Aviation Administration to establish the best time to go ATC-0 for approximately 45 minutes to clean the facility. Success was achieved thanks to a now well-established process that has been in place since April.

In August, the President issued a memorandum suspending collection of payroll taxes from federal employees from Sept. 1 through Dec. 31, 2020. This was optional for private sector employers and largely rejected. NATCA did not agree to and was not permitted to negotiate this change in payroll tax withholding.

The suspension of collection did not affect employees’ obligations to pay the taxes, consequently, on Jan. 1, 2021, those taxes became due. Although the IRS issued guidance that the taxes were to be collected during the first four months of 2021, Congress extended that deadline through Dec. 31, 2021.

Employees who had their taxes deferred, generally those who earn less than $4,000 per pay period, had the first repayment withheld in the amount of approximately $50 with the first pay date of the new year (Jan. 12, 2021). Repayment of the remaining deferred tax balance will be in equal amounts during the remaining 23 pay periods of 2021. Similar to the initial implementation, NATCA did not agree to and is not permitted to negotiate this change in payroll tax withholding.

The NATCA Families private Facebook group was created in 2018 with the goal of bringing families together online and in person at various NATCA events. The committee leads include NATCA members, NATCA family members, and NATCA employees.

It is important to NATCA that families feel the same brotherhood and sisterhood as NATCA members. The group provides opportunities for families to get to know one another virtually using Facebook and in person through organized kid-friendly events. Additionally, the group educates families on various NATCA/FAA benefits available to them, provides volunteer opportunities, and offers a strong, supportive environment where families can feel safe discussing concerns and celebrating successes.

"NATCA Families organizes social gatherings at Communicating For Safety, NATCA in Washington and at Convention,” Cleveland Center (ZOB) member and NATCA Families group member Jen Malloy said. “At these events, we want our spouses and families to have an extended family to spend the day with while their NATCA member is away working. It's important to NATCA Families that everyone feels like they belong."

A story after my own heart
Some notable Black people that made history
Happy Black History Month
This story is about Mike McNally. (And me wearing a white shirt and tie at the old sector 55.) The first meeting of the New York Center Professional Organization took place at Ed Day’s house sometime in ’84 or ‘85. Dates are not my strongest point. However, I remember everyone who was there - myself and Ed. Ed was a pre-striker. I was getting radar sectors in Area B, not yet FPL. By the time the NATCA organizing effort had reached ZNY, it was still just me and Ed locally, but interest grew immediately. I signed people up like crazy. I worked out of the Viking Bar in Bay Shore. If you came to talk union with me, by 1am or so you were signed up. One day at work McNally walks up to me. I didn’t know him at all. He asks if I’ll be at the Viking tonight, he wants to talk union. He asked questions like no other. He flat out told me he's anti-union, but his fellow controllers in his area made it sound interesting, like we could really make a difference. He said talk to me. We talked at the bar until 4am, then went to the diner across the street from the center, where he signed the NATCA paperwork as an original member around 5:30 that morning. Mike was all in. He joined me and Ed on our local executive board. When our next election came up, Ed had done his part, and I wanted out of Long Island, so Mike was elected our local leader. I agreed to stick around as his number two until my escape was realized. This photo of me was taken for a newspaper article a few weeks after ZNY picked Mike to be their leader. The 'blips of tension’ aren’t on the screen, of course, the tension was between controllers and management. Ed Day was old school union. I was old school. Day one Mike is leading our local, he comes to me, says Mike, how about we try something different? How about we show management we are their equals? How about we cut our hair short and shave everyday and even wear white shirts and dark ties? How about we know the books and the law as good or better than them? How about we force them to treat us as equals? How about we show them we are the real professionals and not them sitting behind a desk? Are you in Mike? You bet Mike, I’m all in.

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
