Dear Sisters and Brothers,
In June of this year, the membership was advised that the TWU/IAM Associations had retained the services of Neutral Arbitrator Joshua Javits to create final integrated seniority lists. Shortly thereafter, Javits met with TWU/IAM negotiators and seniority committee members to receive their thoughts, input and guidance and then sent a communication to members requesting that they submit comments and information for his consideration during the fact-finding stage of the seniority integration process.

Both the Fleet Service and Mechanic and Related/Stores negotiating committees met this week in Washington, DC. The week began with each committee meeting with company representatives to discuss outstanding articles and continue to exchange proposals.
The M&R/Stores committee exchanged proposals on Overtime and Rebids and have further narrowed our position for each article. The company has yet to respond to our proposals regarding Vacations, Holidays and Limited Duty. Download this communication
Brothers and Sisters:
As negotiations with American Airlines continue, we know you’re eager for additional information about what’s happening at the bargaining table. Here’s the latest:
It’s been a few weeks since the interim agreement, and, despite the progress we made on those economic issues, it’s been a bit slow as we’ve returned to direct negotiations. The company has been helpful with resolving key issues with the agreement, but overall, we’re growing frustrated with the pace at which things are moving.
