      JCBA Negotiations Update September 23, 2016

      Both the Fleet Service and Mechanic and Related/Stores negotiating committees met this week in Washington, DC. The week began with each committee meeting with company representatives to discuss outstanding articles and continue to exchange proposals.

      The M&R/Stores committee exchanged proposals on Overtime and Rebids and have further narrowed our position for each article. The company has yet to respond to our proposals regarding Vacations, Holidays and Limited Duty.

      The Fleet committee received the company’s counter proposals on Part Time, Temporary Assignments and Vacations. The Temporary Assignments article has been narrowed down to two issues. Some issues regarding Part Time and Vacation provisions were resolved, but fell short of meeting the memberships’ needs. We also finalized our counter proposals regarding Overtime and Vacations.

      On Wednesday, the company presented the Association with a Power Point presentation for Fleet Service cross-utilization that they previously shared with their leadership team. The company's presentation exceeded the cross-utilization of L-US and L-AA employees that is permitted in our recent pay adjustment agreement. Their plan, as presented, undermines our existing seniority system and contracts, and attempts to prematurely achieve the efficiencies that can only come from joint collective bargaining agreements.

      Your representatives made it clear to the company that this is unacceptable. The company has requested to meet with the Association committees early next week to continue dialogue in an effort to resolve these issues.

      The Association committees stand shoulder to shoulder and will not tolerate the company unilaterally making changes to existing agreements. 

      The next sessions are scheduled for:
      --Week of September 26th – Dallas/Fort Worth

      Fraternally,
      Mark Baskett, Mike Fairbanks, Pete Hogan, Tim Hughes, Tim Murphy, Steve Miller, Brian Oyer, Pat Rezler, Art Risley, Andre Sutton, Rodney Walker, Bill Wilson


      TWU International Equity Update

      We continue to receive questions concerning the American Airlines equity lawsuit. The latest update is below:

      The appeal by plaintiffs in the Demetrius lawsuit is still pending:  the U.S. District Court ordered the dismissal of this case, in which plaintiffs challenge TWU’s Equity Distribution Plan; and plaintiffs have appealed the Court’s order to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The case has not yet been scheduled for argument, nor have judges been assigned to the case. 

      TWU will communicate with you as soon as there is any further development in the appeal. Please be sure to download the TWU App and sign up for notifications to get the latest updates on this and all things TWU-related.
