On behalf of the Local 591 Executive Board, I would like to wish a Happy AMT Day to the AMTs in our Local. May 24th is a day set aside to celebrate the proud profession of the Aircraft Maintenance Technician. Thankfully, this AMT Day, when compared to last year, the airline industry has a much better outlook.

Workers' Memorial Day, also known as International Workers' Memorial Day or International Commemoration Day for Dead and Injured, takes place annually around the world on April 28, an international day of remembrance and action for workers killed, disabled, injured, or made unwell by their work.
Not to be confused with Memorial Day.
Attention all Title I members: Effective today, there is a change to GPM 13.19.3 A (Monitor and challenge policy). There will be 2 forms(checklists) required when accomplishing any type of Monitor and Challenge process, and will be required to be stamped and stapled to the paperwork. The forms will be 10127 and 10151.
When your ASAP committee went to the GPM section today, the link did not work, and we have filed an ASAP, and contacted the manager that owns the process. This being said, we would expect they’ll fix it in a day or 2, but any AMT accomplishing the slide work must request this of the person(manager or designee giving the briefing), prior to doing the work.
