Progress Through Unity


I had previously announced in my June GC report about a trial run of this new payroll system at the MMC. The contractor is almost ready to “go active” in a very small test group of assignments. The crews that will be affected will be instructed on the new system and its capabilities prior to it going into this test operation. This test run is to see what bugs need to be worked out and discussed before the Carrier moves forward in a  large-scale effort. Once the test results are back I will be meeting with the Carrier to go over the results.  I had asked for this operational test in a proactive gesture so we could see in advance any problems that may arrive from using this system. I will keep everyone up to date with information as it becomes available.

Thank You,

Stephen J. Burkert
