We are currently experiencing a record number of new applications to our union local. This circumstance, combined with the somewhat transient nature of our industry, has encouraged us to update our policy on permittees who have become “INACTIVE”.
To be “INACTIVE” a permittee has not contacted us updating their availability for a period of time that it has been determined by our crewing department that the permittee’s availability is out of date. In many cases our crewing department may have tried updating the permittee’s availability by contacting them without success.
If a person is “INACTIVE” for over five (5) years they will be removed from our data base and their files destroyed. Therefore, they would need to reapply in the future to become active. Previous to this change the allowable “INACTIVE” period was seven (7) years.
