President’s Message – 2-9-2018

Brothers and Sisters,

Contract negotiations resume the weeks of the 12th and 19th of February.  The negotiating team has passed a comprehensive proposal on to the company and we are awaiting their response, knowing that the company has already said they can’t afford what were’re asking for.  The company has promised us the best contract in the industry but still haven’t delivered.  Keep in mind that highest paid doesn’t amount to an industry leading contract.  I continue to see tensions rise in our work environment and ask you to continue to do the great job that you do despite the inequalities that we suffer with as TWU members.  I know the negotiating team is working hard to get us that contract and hopefully in the next two weeks, the picture will become more clear.

Kevin Sullivan – President Local 510

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
