Dear Brothers & Sisters:

We have received reports from Locals and members stating that they have received their first Equity Distribution mailings from the TWU and there has been some confusion.

It is important to note that the equity distribution mailings will be separate.

You will receive one letter that explains your eligibility to participate in the distribution of equity (i.e. common stock) associated with the settlement of a grievance regarding the overpayment of health insurance premiums.

At the scheduling conference this morning in District Court in Washington, D.C. on the DOJ complaint, the District Court set a trial date of November 25, 2013 and a status conference for October 1, 2013. This is well in advance of the March trial date requested by the government. Further, this does not prevent the Bankruptcy Court from issuing a formal decision and order on confirmation of the plan of reorganization since post confirmation, even if approved by the Bankruptcy Court,  there must still be regulatory approval of the merger before the merger can formally close.
