      JCBA Negotiations Update December 15, 2016

      The company presented the following proposals to the union this week:

      -Vacations - No tentative agreement was reached as the remaining issues include the number of vacation weeks and accrual formula.

      -Hours of Work - No tentative agreement was reached as the remaining issues include the scheduling of part-timers and adverse weather conditions.

      The union presented the following proposals to the company this week:

      -Reduction in Force
      -Recall
      -Voluntary Furlough

      -Recognition of Rights and Compliance

      TWU International Equity Update

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

      The Cmpany and the lawyers representing the Early Out recepients made their arguments in front of Judge James R. Browning, on December 13, 2016. 

      According to the information available on the Appeals Court website a decision on these cases can take anywhere from 3 months to a year. Although, they also mention the fact there is no set timetable for a decision. 

      As information becomes available, we will share.
