Brothers and Sisters:
 
The Association Fleet Negotiating Committee met with the company during the week of January 16 in Dallas/Fort Worth.
 
 
This week the Association received the following counter proposals:
 
Reduction in Force – there are substantial issues that need to be resolved prior to achieving an agreement.
 
Voluntary Furlough – the remaining outstanding issues were resolved.
 
Limited Duty – we realize the importance of this article and are committed to enhancing the language to protect the membership. 
 
One Station Complex (TWU) – this article is contingent upon other articles being negotiated and those talks continue.
