Sisters and brothers,

In last week’s communication, we stated the Association was shown the company’s presentation on its cross utilization scheme that violates our collective bargaining agreements and the interim wage adjustment agreements.

While our JCBA bargaining can be frustrating and sometimes confrontational, this tactic used by the company is disrespectful, dishonest and undermines the entire process.

At the company’s request, your committee met this week in Dallas/Fort Worth to continue the dialogue. The company informed … Read More...
