02/04/2021 Negotiations Update
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Your negotiating committee has been preparing for contract negotiations since last year. Our first scheduled meetings with the company were scheduled for the week of January 18th.
During one of our last preparation meetings, a discussion took place about the financial impact this pandemic is putting on the airline industry.
After much discussion we decided that we would attempt to get the current contract extended with no other changes other than pay increases.
A proposal for a 24-month extension with pay rate increases was given to the company.
The company responded with a counter proposal that did not meet our expectations.
We have decided to continue with the process and begin Section 6 contract negotiations.
As soon as we schedule future meeting dates, we will update you.
Thank you for your support.
