Sisters and Brothers,

The Association Fleet Service Negotiating Committee met with American Airlines this week in Dallas/Fort Worth to continue joint contract negotiations.

Despite our willingness to move this process along, the company continues to bypass your committee and attempt to negotiate directly with you, the membership, through town hall meetings. During these meetings, the company promises large pay increases, but fails to tell you is that in other very important areas of our contract they are presenting concessionary proposals that include the lesser language of the two pre-merger contracts.

Sisters and Brothers,

The Association Fleet Negotiating Committee met with American Airlines this week in Dallas/Fort Worth to continue joint contract negotiations.

During this week’s talks, we made progress on issues which have previously bogged us down. A TA was reached on Work Schedules and significant progress has been made on Overtime. To date, we have not received a response from the company to our counter-proposal on Holidays. That TA’s are not coming out every week is not reflective of the hard work of the committee. We remain committed to

The Seniority Integration Committee will continue its work in parallel with joint contract negotiations.

As we returned to the table with American Airlines, the company forwarded its proposal regarding holidays, which fell far below the expectation of the membership considering the record profits American Airlines continues to
