While we are waiting on a response from the National Mediation Board (NMB) regarding our proffer, your IAM joint contract negotiations committee met from Monday, May 29 and continued through Friday, June 2, 2017 in Springfield, Missouri.

Your committee exchanged proposals with the Company on the following Sections:

Section 4, Scheduling and Section 11, Leaves of Absence.

After meeting with the company, we remain disappointed that we have not reached an agreement that reaches pay parity and produces a merged seniority list.  Several years have passed;  it is time for a contract.   We look forward to an offer of a proffer from the NMB, to seriously move this process along.

We thank you for your patience and look forward to your continued support.

The mediator has scheduled our next negotiation session in Springfield, Missouri June 12 to June 16, 2017.

Negotiations updates can be accessed at: or on the IAM ExpressJet app which can be downloaded by searching IAMAW on your app or Google Play store.


Fraternally yours,
