      JCBA Negotiations Update February 16, 2018

      Association, AA Executive Session Negotiations Continue

      The Executive Negotiating Committee met face to face with American Airlines this week in Washington D.C. Complete Tentative Agreements were reached on:
      Filling of Vacancies-MLS

      Discussions continued on the MLS Classifications Article that contains some Scope provisions. The parties have narrowed their positions in this article.

      The majority of the Letters of Agreement that were previously identified to be discussed and incorporated into the JCBA or revised to reflect current applications were discussed and agreed to this week.

      The Negotiating Committees this week began the task of building a JCBA draft with all the previously tentatively agreed to Articles, an arduous and painstaking process to ensure accuracy of the agreed upon language.

      This week’s work was positive and productive; however, your solidarity and patience are of tremendous importance as we move the JCBA negotiating process much closer to the end than the beginning. By the end of next week’s negotiation session, we will have a clear idea of how serious the company is in resolving Scope, Healthcare, Retirement and all forms of Compensation.

      The future negotiating calendar is as follows:
      February 20- DCA

      Fraternally, 
      Mark Baskett, William Fa, Mike Fairbanks, Tim Hughes, Steve Miller, Tim Murphy, Pat Rezler, Andre Sutton, Rodney Walker & Bill Wilson

      TWU International Equity Update

      We continue to receive questions concerning the American Airlines equity lawsuit. The latest update is below:

      I write you with a quick update on the Equity Distribution Plan. Several members raised questions in response to my letter that was sent last week. As a result, I have asked our lawyers to prepare a “question and answer” sheet . This will be sent out in the near future.

      Our legal team will provide answers to the questions I received. Until then, let me share that the Plan currently is funded at about $85 million dollars. Arrangements will now be developed to distribute the money.

      Please remember this is a complicated, detailed and time consuming process. Our lawyers will keep the eligible recipients informed of the timetable, process and other legal issues like the withholding of some funds because of taxes .

      Be assured we are carefully working to bring this to conclusion.

      Thank you.

      Fraternally,
      Mike Mayes
      Director, Air Division, TWU International
