The Executive Negotiating Committee met with American Airlines the week of June 5th, in Washington D.C. and continued discussions of several of the open issues and Articles.
The M&R Committee reviewed and passed to the Company M&R Classifications, the complexity of this Article presented us with several challenges. The Committee also prepared MLS Classifications to be passed to the Company.
The Fleet Service Committee continued to work on Transfers and Promotions, and had exchanges with the Company. The Negotiating Committees, including the Executive Committee, reviewed the General and Miscellaneous Article. While the Committees and the Company have mutually agreed upon several paragraphs in principle within General and Miscellaneous, this Article will remain open for all work groups until the conclusion of the entire negotiation process.
The Committees reached Tentative Agreements for all work groups on the following Articles:
- Effects on Prior Agreements
- Issuance of SIDA Badges (New Article)
While the Executive Committee continues to meet face to face with the Company, the Negotiating Committees continue to review and craft counter proposals.
Negotiations are scheduled to resume on the following weeks: June 12th, July 17th & July 24th in Washington, DC.
Your Negotiating Committees remain optimistic that more Articles will be T/A’d over the upcoming weeks, so long as American Airlines management remains committed to their promises of industry-leading contracts.
