Association, AA Mechanic & Related/Stores Negotiations Update

associationApril 29, 2016

Sisters and Brothers:

The Mechanic & Related/Stores Negotiating Committee met with American Airlines the week of April 25th in Washington, D.C.   During this week’s sessions, your Negotiating Committee exchanged and discussed the following articles:

  • Temporary Employees:  We reached a tentative agreement to eliminate this article.
  • Hours of Service:  We exchanged proposals on this article specific to rebids (bids).
  • Meal Periods:  We continued discussions on this article.
  • Training:  The Committee continued work on this article in preparation to respond to the company’s proposal.
  • Shift Swaps:  We exchanged several proposals and have narrowed this issue down to what we understand to be a single item.
  • Grievance Procedure:  We continued discussions on this article, which is the basis for enforcing the contract. We are down to one item and will continue to work to achieve a tentative agreement.
  • General and Miscellaneous:  We continued to move items from this article to more appropriate areas of the agreement in an effort to simplify the contract. We will continue this process during upcoming sessions.
