THE TWU/IAM Association executive negotiating committee participated on a conference call conducted by National Mediation Board mediators yesterday, December 14, 2018. Negotiators from American Airlines also participated.
The mediators recapped the remaining open items to be negotiated. They also set the agenda and negotiating schedule for the beginning of 2019.
Brothers & Sisters,
This past Saturday, the International released a letter in which they explained how they have taken the Company to Federal Court as a method to try and get a favorable ruling concerning the current USPS background screenings being conducted.
As part of that letter, they mentioned the filing of an injunction with the Court.
TWU has been informed by American that they plan to resume USPS drug tests on Fleet Service Clerks. While the vast majority of Fleet Service Clerks records reflect they were drug tested, some members’ records hired after 1998 do not, according to the Company, and they need to comply in order
to meet Postal Service requirements.
