Sisters and Brothers,
Your TWU-IAM Association Mechanic & Related Negotiating Committee met with American Airlines this week in Washington D.C. to continue joint contract negotiations. The Committee was able to reach preliminary, tentative agreements pertaining some of the articles discussed this week.
During this session your Committee continued discussions with the Company and the following articles were discussed:
Fitness for Duty
After several exchanges with the company, the parties have narrowed their positions on the above articles. In addition, we continued to review System Board of Adjustment.
Steady and thorough progress is being made toward a new JCBA. We are keeping in mind the best interest of the membership as we consider every detail of each article.
We are scheduled to continue negotiations in Washington D.C. next week, and the weeks of February 8th in BWI, February 29th in DFW, March 7th in DCA, March 21st in DFW and March 28th TBD.
In closing, your continued solidarity and support is appreciated and necessary as we move forward into the more difficult areas of JCBA negotiations. Updates to the membership will continue after each session.
