    • “This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.” I love that quote by Elmer Davis, news reporter, author and director of the U.S. Office of War Information during World War II and also a Peabody Award recipient. I am fond of it for that word “brave”. Brave, as defined by Webster – but oh so much deeper than just “words” – is: “ready to face and endure danger or pain; showing courage. Endure or face unpleasant conditions or behavior without showing fear.” Synonyms include: “heroic”, “lionhearted”, “bold”, “gallant”, “daring”. Brave is the men and women of Robins Air Force Base. Those of the workforce who have it in their heart just to give their best – a good day’s work for a good day’s wage. Those whose integrity and honesty is aboveboard and yet are subjected to games of politics and bouts of childishness from immature supervisors or managers (if the shoe fits). Every day I am humbled by your bravery in the face of oppression. And there are many ways you can do that.

      It’s a win-win ... Literally. “Two” wins – at least. The first came about a month back. The Agency, explained AFGE Local 987 Trustee David Tucker, had a plan to convert “X” amount of aircraft electricians to aircraft mechanics.” Through a months-long effort by the Union, however – with Tucker in particular at the forefront - a different plan was reached: to instead solicit those in the 2892 career field – the ones that were going to be converted to mechanics - to go to EMXG to work on its workload. EMXG, Tucker explained, needed help and couldn’t get support to obtain new hires. More on that to follow, but first the second win: The conversion effort has been stopped. Said Tucker: “I got a call, a proposition, which was agreed upon, to not convert a single one, but to help spread them out equitably among the maintenance squadrons in aircraft (the volunteer list may be even posted even now).

    • The following is our continuation of a special series celebrating what AFGE Local 987 has accomplished in the past two years. Tearing down walls, building bridges, fighting the tough battles and doing whatever was/is necessary to bring “value added” to all of its members, as well as Robins Air Force Base. (Note: In no particular order, historically. Also, see our May 18 and June 8 paper for accomplishments on: Traffic Flow, Resume Classes and the First-ever OSHA Alliance, Joint Production Council, etc.)
