Joseph “Joe” C. McGhee, Director of Personnel, papers, 1927-1994

Accession: 2136Identifier: 2136-VI.
Scope and Contents: PLEASE NOTE: employees who were retained from company to company maintained their files and did not start new file arrangements. To aid researchers, the change in company name from Ransome Airlines to PAE to TWE appears before the original file title. The Joseph "Joe" C. McGhee, Director of Personnel, papers series contains materials related to labor relations, labor union contracts and agreements, personnel benefits, and labor law. McGhee served in this position from 1986 to 1992, working for Pan Am Express and Trans World Express. Ethel Boyd was McGhee's predecessor in this position at Ransome Airlines, and McGhee inherited some of Boyd's files. The series is arranged into five subseries: Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) files; Independent Union of Flight Attendaents (IUFA) files; International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) files; General files; and Grievance and arbitration files [RESTRICTED].The Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) files subseries documents the process of collective bargaining or labor contract negotiation.

The agreement letter, or contract, includes sections that cover pay, sick leave, vacation, overtime, benefits, and all policies and procedures.

As the regional carrier, the PAE pilots were paid at a lower rate than their Pan American World Airways counterparts, known as "B-scale." ALPA and PAE negotiated a promotion system that allowed pilots to go from PAE to the parent company, where PAE wouldn't lose too many pilots. Of significant interest among the TWE and ALPA materials are the Union Leave of Absence (ULOA) materials. The subseries is arranged chronologically and dates from 1983 to 1994. The Independent Union of Flight Attendants (IUFA) files subseries contains primarily PAE agreements. There are some materials related to a Ransome Airlines agreement negotiation on April 1, 1985, and some correspondence between IUFA and TWE during the transition from PAE in...
