      TWU International Equity Update

      As we enter a new calendar year and begin to analyze the implications of the recently enacted changes to the U.S. tax code, TWU’s lawyers are pressing the IRS for a determination as to the tax-exempt status of the reserve fund created to hold the American Airlines stock granted to the TWU during the bankruptcy reorganization.

      JCBA Negotiations Update October 20, 2017

      Association, AA Executive Session Negotiations Continue

      The Executive Negotiating Committee met face to face with American Airlines this week in New York City.

      As was previously reported, an Association subcommittee met last week in Dallas to review and designate what Letters of Agreement would be retained in the JCBA, should be discussed during negotiations to incorporate into articles of the JCBA, or removed. All TWU and IAM Letters of Agreement inside and outside of the current CBA’s were reviewed for all groups.

      Discussion this week centered around ASAP (Aviation Safety Action Program), GSAP (Ground Safety Action Program), Grandfathering Limited Duty, Overtime procedures for M&R and MLS as well as preliminary Scope discussions for Fleet Service.

      The discussions on the ASAP/ GSAP Memorandums of Understanding are an effort to combine the TWU and IAM programs into a single program to cover all M&R and Stores under the ASAP and Fleet Service under the GSAP.

      We had previously tentatively agreed to the Limited Duty Article; further agreement was reached to grandfather anyone currently on limited duty from an on the job injury for all groups.

      Discussion on overtime distribution procedures for M&R and MLS continued and will support the previously tentatively agreed to Articles for Overtime.

      The Seniority Article for Fleet Service has been tentatively agreed to.

      Negotiations are scheduled to resume on the following weeks: November 6 in Washington, DC and December 11 in Dallas.

      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.

      Mike Mayes
      Director, Air Division, TWU International
