Negotiations were again held this week in Dayton, Ohio, with all members of both negotiating committees participating in this session. An addition to your Negotiating Committee at this round was John Werkmeister, Special Representative from the IAM Grand Lodge, Transportation Department.
This week was dedicated solely to all of the economic areas of the Agreement which are Articles 5; 6; 7; 8; 11; 16; 18; 19; 21; 25 and 28. On Wednesday and Thursday, both the Union and Company made initial passes that covered all of the Articles listed above. With both sides having made their respective proposals, it became evident that there exists a significant divide between the respective positions in most of the Articles.
The next face-to-face negotiations session has been scheduled and will occur during the week of October 24, 2016 in Dayton, Ohio.
Your Committee remains determined in bringing these negotiations to a successful conclusion with an Agreement containing an economic package representative of your contributions to the success of PSA and American Airlines.
The only source for accurate information concerning these negotiations will be from District Lodge 142 and will be released following each negotiating session. As always, if you have any questions about this process, please give me a call at (859) 653-4037 or email me at email@example.com.
With best wishes, we remain
Sincerely and fraternally,
