The Future of Aviation Advisory Committee (FAAC) Subcommittee on Labor and World-class Workforce; amendment to notice of meeting.
The Department of Transportation (DOT), Office of the Secretary of Transportation, announced a meeting of the FAAC Subcommittee on Labor and World-class Workforce, which will be held via teleconference. A call-in number and pass code will be issued upon registration. This notice announced the date and time of the meeting, which will be open to the public. The purpose of the FAAC is to provide advice and recommendations to the Secretary of Transportation to ensure the competitiveness of the U.S. aviation industry and its capability to effectively manage the evolving transportation needs, challenges, and opportunities of the global economy. The subcommittee is charged with ensuring the availability and quality of a workforce necessary to support a robust, expanding commercial aviation industry in light of the changing socio-economic dynamics of the world's technologically advanced economies. Among other matters, the subcommittee will examine three issues affecting the future employment requirements of the aviation industry: (1) The need for science, technology, engineering, and math skills in the industry; (2) the creation of a culture of dignity and respect in workplace; and (3) the effect of NextGen on various workforces. This teleconference meeting was described as “solely for discussion with Mr. Joshua M. Javits, a professional arbitrator and mediator, who has mediated a number of air carrier labor-management disputes.” However, at the subcommittee meeting on September 23, 2010, it was determined additional time would be needed during the October 1, 2010, meeting to refine the subcommittee's topic proposals for presentation to the full FAAC on October 20, 2010. Accordingly, in addition to the scheduled discussion with Mr. Javits on October 1, the subcommittee will discuss possible actionable items for presentation at the October 20 FAAC meeting in Los Angeles, California, and work related to the general responsibilities of the subcommittee.
The meeting will be held on October 1, 2010, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).
The meeting will be held via teleconference. A call-in number and pass code will be issued upon registration. (See below for registration instructions.)
