Show Our Support for the Teachers & Support Staff



Dear Brothers and Sisters,
                                                Brevard county teachers and support staff responded during the shutdown by donating their time, money and food in support us. Please join me in returning our support by attending the Public Ed Rally #2. The rally is at 4:45pm, Tuesday, February 12th, 2019, 2700 Judge Fran Jamieson Way, Viera, FL 32940.

Return to Work & Food Bank Info

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
                                                I want to thank everyone for the tremendous turnout at the rally today. Please remember our work is not complete. We need to contact our federal elected officials again to convey the message that government shutdowns are unacceptable and all federal contract workers should receive back pay for this latest one.
                      Kennedy Space Center was back open as of 12pm today. As a result, all employees working on the IMSS, KPLSS, LASSO, TOSC & ISC contracts should report to their normally scheduled shifts on Monday, January 28th, 2019, unless directed to report earlier by management.
                     There will be a food bank distribution this upcoming Thursday, January 31st, 2019 from 12pm to 5pm at the hall. The food bank is to be administered by Second Harvest Food Bank and Hands for Healing International. It is open to the entire community so please help share this information and provide the address of the hall, 271 Taylor Ave., Cape Canaveral, FL, 32920.

In Solidarity,

Rally & Food Drive Is Still On!!!!

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
                                                The Solidarity Rally and Food Drive will still happen tomorrow, January 26th, 2019, from 12pm to 2pm. Even though we have received encouraging news that the  government shutdown will end, the proposed continuing resolution only funds the government through February 15th, 2019. As I said in a earlier blog, it is imperative that all members make every attempt to attend. We want to send a message that government shutdowns are not acceptable and that all federal contractors impacted should receive the back pay missed due to the latest shutdown.

In Solidarity,

Rally Reminder & Other Info



Dear Brothers and Sisters,
                                                Please remember the solidarity rally and food drive scheduled for this Saturday, January 26th, from 12pm - 2pm. It is important that all members make every attempt to attend. For those that have been fortunate enough to work during the shutdown, I encourage you to consider donating non-perishable food items to the food drive.
                 Members that are employed on the ISC contract and looking to transition to the BOSS contract should know that PAE has notified us that all job offers for represented employees are still on hold. We will inform everyone as soon as they provide us an update on the job offers.
                  We were made aware today of concerns from members that they might not receive all of the wage/pay compensation they are entitled to for work during a base closure. These concerns need to be put to rest as we will ensure everyone receives all compensation they are entitled to per their respective CBA. In addition, conversations have been held with the companies pertaining these concerns and they agreed the CBAs will be followed pertaining base closure compensation.
                 In a final note, I received the same suggestion from several members on financially surviving the shutdown. It was to lower your 401K deductions until the shutdown is over and we return to work. You will have to contact your employer to accomplish this and we can assist in identifying a point of contact.

In Solidarity,

Do Not Establish a GoFundMe Page/Account

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
                                                Please do not establish a GoFundMe page/account to raise funds for yourself. There might be ethical and legality concerns involved as we are federal contractor employees. We will contact the IAMAW legal department for guidance and provide an update on this subject.

In Solidarity,
