Covenant Employees: Did you get a Christmas bonus this year?

Of course not!

Your Christmas "bonus" came from passing your PSE test on your first attempt.  If you didn't pass on your first attempt you received a big fat zero for your "bonus."

The true colors of Covenant Aviation, LLC. are shining as brightly as ever.  And yet they want a truly motivated workforce.  Employees are following the lead of management: Money is the best motivator of all!

Covenant Aviation, LLC. is CLEARLY....

 ...unhappy with the number of call outs on Christmas day. Just what type of employees do they think that they  deserve?  They have never displayed any type of appreciation nor respect towards the workforce -- the same workforce that has enabled them to extend a three year contract into one that has just entered its fourteenth year.
Their thinking is, "if we don't open up the vacation time off schedule, everyone will have to be here."  This is just another example of the incompetence of the management team. 
Isn't it better to know well enough in advance so they can prepare for it? Employees will take time off regardless, so why not plan ahead?
But what do we know?

We have another question!

The latest report from the Inspector General has determined that too much emphasis is placed on "reducing passenger wait times", rather than providing quality security.  In response to these findings, TSA Administrator Peter Neffenger stated, during a recent visit to San Francisco International Airport, that the main directive of the workforce will shift from efficiency to effectiveness.

Our question is this:  Why has Covenant Management completely disregarded these instructions and persisted in focusing on "security efficiency"?

Over the years, the Covenant Aviation management team has shown us their true colors.


They have shown us that they purportedly value integrity, but display none themselves. 

They have shown us their capacity to deny accountability by pointing the finger of blame at someone else, instead of looking inward. 

They have consistently shown us the value they place on profit, regardless of employee satisfaction or quality of product.

They have shown us their lack of appreciation and respect for the workforce that allowed them to extend their contract by a full decade. 

They have shown us their willingness to disregard the complaints of the workforce by turning a blind eye and a deaf ear.

They have shown us their true colors, and it is not a pretty picture.

We have a question!

Why was the copy of the latest signed CBA, that was sent to the TSA, so heavily redacted?

Just what doesn't CAS want the TSA to know?

We will supply an non-redacted copy to the TSA if we are contacted.

Let's get to the bottom of this subterfuge!

What a surprise....another backroom deal between Covenant Aviation and SEIU.

Covenant and SEIU have joined forces once again to stick it to the employees!

Information that we have received, that was dated 9/17/15, disclosed a cozy and convenient arrangement.  SEIU wants to guarantee that they are the union that will represent the workforce, whether Covenant retains the contract or not. So, what does Covenant get in return? How about the political clout of SEIU?

And why has the union asked for -- and been granted by Covenant -- access to the last four digits of our social security numbers? This information is "personally identifiable information." Is this even legal? What gives Covenant the right to make that decision?

We have submitted this information to the appropriate parties for review.

Upper management wants to gather employees twice a month, from each section of the screener workforce (checked baggage and checkpoint), to come up with suggestions on how to create a "positive workplace environment."

Do they really need the workforce to tell them what they should already know? They know exactly what has caused the discontent throughout the workforce!  Just who are they trying to kid?

Previous "sessions" with management produced zero results. They wrote suggestions down and pretended that they actually cared enough to make changes. Can anyone point out any positive changes that have been implemented? The only changes that have taken place have been negative. Staffing levels are so low that we can not take our breaks and we are delayed being released at the end of our work shifts. Management wants more production from fewer workers.

So, what is behind this insincere attempt to improve worker morale? If you don't know by now we will tell you...it's more profit for them!

Will Covenant retain this contract to provide an inferior product to the stakeholders? Will a new company assume responsibilities at SFO?

We can and will increase performance for a company that cares and treats their employees with respect and appreciation.
Covenant should be seen for what they truly are. They are a company that has always put "Profit before Product."

Just why is Covenant Aviation Security LLC so confident?

Upper management has recently stated that "the contract for SFO is ours to lose."  How did they reach that conclusion?  Did they make another backroom deal?

What they refuse to acknowledge is just how tenuous the positions of upper management are.

Should another company assume control of security at SFO, they would inherit an experienced workforce that has done fairly well under the Covenant management team. Upper management would be replaced with a leadership team from the acquiring company.

Just imagine what the workforce could accomplish with a management team that actually cared about their employees! Just imagine what it would be like to work for a company that puts product before profit.

Remember, "it's performance versus potential."  Can and will the workforce improve their attitude and professionalism under new leadership? 

Fear not the future; things have a way of working out!

Are you enjoying your quarterly bonus?

Covenant Aviation, the profit before product company, announced last week that our quarterly bonus would be in our paychecks dated 5/29/15.

For screeners, that amounts to 83 cents per day; for supervisors it amounts to $1.66 per day.  Just how much did our stellar management team get?

Are you feeling appreciated? Are you motivated to provide "world class customer service"?  Or are you following the lead of our management team and are only in it for the money?

Once again, we will state the obvious:  "The quality of the only product that you have to offer is determined solely by the example set in place by management!"
