Update on Arbitrator's Ruling for 2014 Gain Share:
The Union has received the Arbitrator's ruling on the 2014 Gain Share grievance case. The Arbitrator ruled in the favor of the Union regarding the Company's violation of Article 6, Section 6.5(b).
However, the Arbitrator ruled in favor of the company regarding the eligibility of individuals that took the VRP option and those individuals that were laid off due to the divestiture of the Gulfstream programs. These individuals will not be eligible for payout.
In final, the Arbitrator's determination is that the Union's grievance is sustained, and that the Company (Spirit) and the Union must meet jointly to reach a REASONABLE remedy to the grievance. The Arbitrator DID NOT determine or award an amount, but will retain jurisdiction regarding this matter until the grievance is resolved by the parties.
Any further questions will be addressed at next weeks membership meeting.
