TWU Bargaining Units Meet in Dallas Today
to Negotiate “Me-Too” Clauses with AMR
Five TWU-Represented Bargaining Units that Accepted American
Airlines’ Offer Last Month Will Negotiate Improvements as a
Result of More Favorable Terms Offered to Pilots
Following Me-Too Talks, Maintenance and Stores Workers
Seek to Meet with Company Negotiators
Dallas ‒ Negotiators for five Transport Workers Union bargaining units, representing American Airlines’ Fleet Service Clerks, Dispatchers, Ground School Instructors, Maintenance Control Technicians, and Simulator Technicians will meet in Dallas later today to negotiate improvements to the offers accepted on May 15.
The May offers included “me-too” clauses that stated that any further improvements invaluation or profit sharing received by other work groups would be extended to bargaining units that consented to accept the company offers. These so-called “me-too” clauses became active when AMR improved its offer to the pilots’ union last week.
Plans to restart negotiations for the two TWU work groups that did not accept earlier offers has been communicated to AMR. Negotiators for the Maintenance and Stores bargaining units are expected to meet with the company after the “me too” talks conclude.
