Association, AA Executive Session Negotiations Continue

Brothers and Sisters,

 

The Executive Negotiating Committee this week met face to face with American Airlines in Washington D.C.

 

Complete Tentative Agreements were reached on:

Classifications-MTS

Discussions continued on the MLS Classifications Article that contains some Scope provisions. The parties continued to narrow their positions in this article. Scope discussions were completed for MTS, except for those covenants that are global in nature and will apply to the Scope article for all JCBA’s.

Progress was made on the outstanding issues in the following Articles:

M&R Grievance Procedure

Fleet Service Vacation accrual change “double jeopardy”

Weekly Pay checks for all groups

 

The Negotiating Committees continued the task of building JCBA drafts with all the previously tentatively agreed to Articles, an arduous and painstaking process to ensure accuracy of the agreed upon language.

With the progress made on these tasks, the Fleet Service Committee will meet with the company the week of February 26th and the M&R Committee will meet with the company the week of March 5th to reconcile any errors that either party has identified while compiling the JCBA drafts with the previously agreed to tentative agreements.

During the next 2 weeks that this reconciliation process takes place, the Executive Negotiating Committee will continue dialog with American Airlines on the outstanding Scope and economic topics, healthcare, retirement and all forms of compensation in an effort to move closer to a successful conclusion of JCBA negotiations.

Your continued solidarity and support continues to inspire and motivate your committees to bring these negotiations to completion.

Fraternally,

Fleet Negotiating Committee:

Association, AA Executive Session Negotiations Continue

Brothers and Sisters,

The Executive Negotiating Committee met face to face with American Airlines this week in Washington D.C.

Complete Tentative Agreements were reached on:

Seniority M&R-MLS
Hours of Service M&R
Reduction in Force M&R-MLS
Overtime Distribution Procedures M&R- MLS

As previously reported in our last session, Association negotiators presented the company with a comprehensive proposal on Scope for all groups.

The Scope proposals set the foundation for the Association this week to present to American Airlines, the largest and most profitable airline in the world (who yesterday reported year-end profits of $3.8 Billion), proposals on all outstanding economic topics. Those topics include Healthcare, Retirement and all forms of Compensation.

Your negotiating committees are pleased to have all of these topics on the bargaining table, a necessary next step in the completion of JCBA negotiations and returning to our members what we have sacrificed to put the company in the position it is in today.

Your continued solidarity and support are critical to our success at this juncture of the negotiation process.

The future negotiating calendar is as follows:
February 12- DCA
February 20- DCA

Fraternally,
