On June 15, a day like any other, PASS Chapter NE3 member Robert Lynn was working at the New York Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON) facility, where he also serves as the Communications unit PASS representative. However, what started out as a typical day quickly changed when Lynn’s coworker, Neil O’Toole, an air traffic controller, suffered sudden cardiac arrest. When Air Traffic Operations Manager Jeffrey Brooks ran into the equipment room looking for someone trained on the Automated External Defibrillator (AED), Lynn knew he had to take action.
Thanks to the efforts of PASS working with Aeronautical Center leadership, personnel and students at the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center may now opt-in to receive email notifications and/or text messages to any SMS-enabled phone regarding various events and emergencies that occur at the Aeronautical Center. This has been an area of concern for some time now and PASS has worked to bring attention to the issue.
PASS is pleased to announce that Flight Standards employees in the 220 and 230 branches working in the Northwest Mountain regional office will soon be able to vote to be included in the PASS Flight Standards bargaining unit. Because of the way the bargaining unit is defined in the Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA) certification, Flight Standards employees situated in the FAA’s regional offices are not automatically represented by PASS and, upon a showing of interest, we have individually organized each regional office. Now the Northwest Mountain has the opportunity to join their colleagues in the Central, Southern, Alaska and New England regional offices who have previously voted to be included in the Flight Standards bargaining unit.
