IAM141.org

Christine Mahoe, a seasoned professional from Local Lodge 1979, has been appointed as the new Employee Assistance Program (EAP) Coordinator at Hawaiian Airlines. With her extensive experience as a Chief Cargo Agent, a Customer Service Agent, and an impressive 15-year career in social work, Christine is uniquely positioned to build an effective EAP to guide and support the Machinists Union members through their professional and personal challenges.

Christine’s journey in social work began in 1995 and spanned across various sectors such as domestic violence, family courts, drug rehabilitation, and high-risk youth programs. Her ability to transition between programs during times of budget cuts enriched her expertise across multiple social work domains. Her roles demanded a readiness to assist youths in trouble and to reunite them with their families, skills that will serve her well in her new position. She also served in homeless shelters, learning to identify and leverage resources available within the community, a proficiency that will benefit her in the EAP role.

As the EAP Coordinator, Christine will draw on her past experience to ease the stress and confusion that can sometimes arise from workplace changes. Inspired by the mantra “Be the Change,” she plans to use her extensive experience to guide frontline employees navigating difficult times.

The EAP is a voluntary, work-based program that offers support to employees in resolving personal issues that may adversely impact their work performance, health, and overall well-being. These issues can range from stress, substance abuse, and major life events to financial or legal troubles. The EAP provides free and confidential assessments, short-term counseling, referrals, and follow-up services to employees.

Understanding the unique circumstances of Hawaii, where different stations are located on various islands, Christine aims to build a resource base for connecting members to services within their communities, a task that aligns well with her past experience in locating resources over several islands. She will also conduct visits to these stations to educate members about the EAP and the significant benefits it provides.

District President Mike Klemm applauded the new appointment, stating, “Christine’s passion and commitment to the well-being of union members is inspiring. We’re excited to have her drive the Employee Assistance Program at Hawaiian Airlines, providing crucial support for our Machinists Union members during these transformative times.”

EAP Director Bryan Hutchinson echoed Klemm’s sentiments. “Christine has demonstrated exceptional dedication and capability in her previous roles,” he said. “We have full faith in her ability to lead the EAP and bring a positive impact to our community.”

“Looking ahead, we anticipate the continued growth and success of the EAP with Christine on the team,” he continued. Machinists Union Members are welcome to reach out to Christine directly or via email at cmahoe@IAM141.org. More information about the Employee Assistance Program can be found online at IAM141.org/141eap.

In the words of Christine, “When I was growing up, my father worked on the sugar plantation and was heavily involved with the union. I watched my dad help so many people who were treated poorly by management. He taught all of my siblings and I to always stand up for what we believed in and to defend those that could not defend themselves. He was my inspiration.”

New Contract Ratified at Hawaiian Airlines

Sisters and Brothers,

Yesterday, the more than 2,500 Machinists and Aerospace Union sisters and brothers at Hawaiian Airlines said “Yes” to contracts that locks in five years of compounding wage increases. They said “Yes” to a workplace that’s much more fair to part-timers. They said “Yes” to controlling health care costs. And, they said “Yes” to contracts that provides a healthier work/life balance, protected by new rules that make it more expensive to rely on mandatory overtime instead of proper staffing.

This agreement will allow Hawaiian to continue to attract top talent, inviting skillful, productive workers who are proud to work at Hawaiian Airlines.

We want to offer our sincere gratitude to the negotiating committees at Hawaiian for this accomplishment. These dedicated and diligent unionists spent countless hours away from their families, fighting hard to improve the lives of thousands of deserving workers at the airline. Their dedication has led to this historic agreement and will build a strong foundation for even better future contracts. IAMAW District 141 and 142 Members should be proud of the work they’ve done. 

These contracts will continue to lay the foundations for future improvements for our membership at Hawaiian. Our sisters and brothers at Hawaiian have a right to be proud of this agreement, and we are incredibly honored by the outpouring of solidarity and patience shown by the Hawaiian Airlines membership.

Finally, we applaud the good-faith efforts of Hawaiian Airlines to find an equitable agreement with the union workers that have made the airline such a success. We look forward to building on this relationship, and we encourage even greater investment in hard-working and talented women and men who keep Hawaiian Airlines flying high. 

 

In Solidarity,

Tentative Agreement Reached at Hawaiian Airlines

Sisters and Brothers,

As promised last week, the proofing process for the Tentative Agreements at Hawaiian Airlines is complete, and we are happy to present them to you this morning for review. These proposals are the product of countless hours of work by your negotiators, and you can be proud of the job they’ve done on your behalf. If ratified, these five-year pacts will lock in the highest pay rates for covered workgroups in the history of Hawaiian Airlines. They will create a much fairer work environment for part-timers and promote a healthier work-life balance by making mandatory overtime more costly for the company.

Please take some time to carefully review the full, finalized text of your specific Tentative Agreement. Your negotiators are eager to answer any questions you may have, so please do not hesitate to contact them.

We enthusiastically encourage all Machinists Union members at Hawaiian Airlines to support this effort and vote in favor of ratification. The date for this crucial vote is set for February 16. Contact your Local Lodge for exact polling locations and times.

In Solidarity,

Aloha sisters and brothers at Hawaiian Airlines,

On Friday, December 10, 2021, your joint negotiations committee met in Chicago to discuss the outstanding issues remaining from our last negotiations session in Las Vegas last month. While we made significant progress and closed most issues, we need to draft the final language to get us to the tentative agreements for both groups. We are getting dates in January to meet to complete this task. As soon as we have confirmed dates, we will let you know. We thank everyone for their patience and support as we bring these talks to a conclusion.
