Q How will customers reach me now that Spirit is turning off my company cell phone?
A Management has not offered any universal guidance on this matter other than to suggest that employees should keep information current in the Corporate Electronic Directory.
Q Can I port/transfer the number of my Company provided device to another phone?
A Spirit announced that this is indeed an option. However, SPEEA-represented employees are not required to use their personal phone for Company business. You can update your contact to a company number within the Corporate Electronic Directory.
Q Can I voluntarily agree to participate in BYOD?
A No, BYOD does not apply to SPEEA-represented employees.
Q Part of my job requires me to photograph work-product, which I have traditionally used my Company cell phone to do. What do I use now?
A Work with your manager to obtain a camera and camera pass or to discuss the use of Company photographic services.
Q I’m required to have a cell phone for travel, does the lack of a company cell phone prohibit me from traveling for Spirit?
A This issue is currently being discussed by senior management. No answer has been shared with SPEEA.
Q I regularly use my Company cell phone as a hot spot when I’m in a remote location for work. What should I do?
A Let your management know when it’s likely you’ll need some sort of connectivity other than standard wi-fi.
Q Many of my vendors require authentication to access their servers/systems and I’ve typically used texts to my Company phone as the methodology. What do I use going forward?
A Spirit has yet to share a response.
Q My job requires me to travel all around the Spirit facilities. My Company cell phone is the fastest way to reach me or for me to reach others (e.g., working rejection tags) from the factory floor. Is there a charge line associated with the expected delays once my cell phone is deactivated?
A We have not received an official response, but some have suggested using an IT disruption or similar charge line.
Q Should I just use my personal phone for work purposes?
A No, as SPEEA is not participating in BYOD and you should not download Company provided s/w (e.g., Intune) onto your personal device.
Q What should I do if my manager asks me to start using my personal cell phone for Company business?
A Politely decline and let your local Council Rep or SPEEA Staff know immediately. SPEEA-represented employees are not required to use their personal phone for Company business.
