AA Bargaining Update, Jan. 27
Sisters and Brothers,
The Association Mechanic & Related/Stores and Fleet Service Negotiating Committees met with American Airlines the week of January 23, 2017.
Mechanic & Related Stores Update
During this week’s session, the Committee exchanged and discussed the following Articles:
Limited Duty- M&R, MLS, MTS and MCT – We have reached a tentative agreement on this Article, which provides enhanced protections for our members.
Hours of Service – M&R, MLS & MCT – We have reached an agreement in principle on this article and will reach a TA once the QA, Planner & Technical Documentations Specialists groups reach an agreement with the company on their section of this Article.
General and Miscellaneous – We exchanged several proposals on this Article with the company in this session. This Article encompasses many facets of the CBA and continues to evolve as we progress through the negotiations process. We have narrowed the items that were open and will leave the Article open until the end of the negotiations to ensure complete coverage in the new JCBA.
Classifications – We continued to prepare our proposal regarding this Article.
Overtime – M&R, MLS and MCT – This Article remains open and with the company, no further response from them was received this week. We remain steadfast in our positions on no mandatory overtime, limiting job continuation and pay for overtime bypass.
Vacation – M&R, MLS & MCT– This Article remains open and with the company, no further response from them was received this week
Holidays – M&R, MLS, MTS and MCT – This Article remains open and with the company, no further response from them was received this week.
