Sisters and Brothers,
Your IAM Joint Contract Negotiations Committee met from Monday, March 20 and continued through Friday March 24, 2017 in San Antonio, Texas.
Your committee exchanged several proposals with the Company on the following Sections:
Section 4, Scheduling – We have passed several proposals regarding scheduling issues such as bidding adjustments, picking up, trading, hours of service and reserve rules just to name a few. Although we have made progress we are still far apart on a few key issues that could impact our membership.
Section 6, Training – We have successfully completed this section and have reached a TA.
As of this session, the following sections of the JCBA are open:
Section 3, Compensation
Section 4, Scheduling
Section 8, Vacation
Section 10, OJI
Section 11, Leaves of Absence
Section 14, Moving Expenses
Section 26, Benefits
Section 27, Duration
Section 30, System Seniority List
Your negotiation committee remains steadfast at addressing all concerns with the company’s proposal, and is dedicated to improving/ maintaining an excellent quality of life for our members. As your representatives at the table, we have again expressed to the company the need to continue to work towards a JCBA until an agreement is reached. While doing so we thank you for your patience and look forward to your continued support.
Future negotiation dates will be communicated once assigned by the mediator.
