Brothers and Sisters,
The full negotiating committees met with Association attorneys in December to prepare our Scope proposals followed by a sub-committee meeting in Washington D.C. the week of January 2nd to the 5th, along with the Association legal team to finalize these Scope proposals.
The Executive Negotiating Committee met face to face with American Airlines this week in Washington D.C. The Executive Committee presented our proposals and positions on Scope articles for all Association Classifications to the company. This is another important step that will ultimately bring the parties closer to resolutions on the remaining critical economic topics.
Additionally, the parties had dialogue and narrowed the gaps on MLS/M&R overtime opportunity distribution procedures and the unpaid LOA matrix charts for all groups.
Complete Tentative Agreements were reached on:
Reduction in Force- MCT
