  • ASSOCIATION NEGOTIATIONS UPDATE
  • Brothers and Sisters,
    THE TWU/IAM Association executive negotiating committee participated on a conference call conducted by
    National Mediation Board mediators yesterday, December 14, 2018. Negotiators from American Airlines also
    participated.
  • The mediators recapped the remaining open items to be negotiated. They also set the agenda and negotiating
    schedule for the beginning of 2019. The Association presented a proposal covering Field Trips for M&R and
    MLS members.
  • The next face-to-face negotiations are scheduled for January 15-17 in San Francisco. Topics to be discussed are
    open economic pay elements, health & welfare (insurance), duration of the agreement, field trips and other open
    contract language items.
  • We were successful in obtaining additional negotiating dates on the calendar. Scheduled negotiating dates are:
    • January 15, 16, 17
    • January 29, 30, 31
    • February 6, 7, 8
    • February 12, 13, 14
    • And an additional week in March – specific dates to be determined
    Our objective is to reach agreement as soon as possible without having to use all of our scheduled dates.
    However, this Association is committed to achieving the compensation, healthcare, retirement and job security
    that our members have earned and deserve. Your continued support and solidarity is both appreciated and
    necessary to reach these goals.
  • We wish all of our members a safe and happy holiday season.
    Fraternally,
    Your Association Executive Negotiating Committee
