Sisters and Brothers,
The Association Mechanic & Related/Stores Negotiating Committee met with American Airlines the week of August 29th in Washington, D.C. During this session, your committee exchanged and discussed the following articles:
Shift Swaps – MCT – We exchanged proposals on this article and have reached a Tentative Agreement.
Overtime – M&R – We exchanged proposals again on this article. We have narrowed it down to a few issues and will continue to work through them. We are also working through the overtime distribution procedures, i.e., how the overtime will be called.
Vacation – M&R & MLS – We are still waiting on the company to respond to our proposal.
Hours of Service M&R & MLS – We exchanged proposals again on this article and are moving closer to an agreement.
Vacation – MCT – We exchanged initial proposals on this article.
Holidays – M&R, MLS, MTS & MCT – We have narrowed this issue down to how much we will be paid on a holiday. We did not receive a proposal from the company this week.
Limited Duty- M&R, MLS, MCT & MTS – We passed this proposal to the company in a previous session; we did not receive a proposal from the company this week.
We want to thank Brother Larry Pike for his help to the negotiating committee and welcome Rollie Reaves to the team, and want to wish you and your family a happy and healthy Labor Day!

We remain united, committed, and resolute in negotiating the JCBAs we deserve. The Interim Letter of Agreement regarding wages changes nothing in our approach to negotiating JCBAs. Our negotiations will continue, and we are committed to fighting for a strong contract that restores your dignity and offers you even more respect on the job. We appreciate your continued solidarity, support, and patience, which is imperative to helping us obtain this goal.
