Sisters and Brothers,
The Association Mechanic & Related/Stores Negotiating Committee met with American Airlines the week of October 17th in ORD. During this session, the committee exchanged and discussed the following articles:
Hours of Service M&R & MLS – We continue to work on this article and are moving closer to an agreement.
Ten hour shifts- The company responded to our proposal for implementing and eliminating ten-hour shifts, and we are waiting on them to clarify one aspect of their response.
Realignment- The company passed us a response to our last proposal and we are close to a tentative agreement on this portion of the Article (Hours of Service).
Reduction in Force M&R & MLS- We exchanged proposals on this article and have made some significant progress.
Recall M&R & MLS- We prepared our initial proposal on this article and are planning to pass it on Monday.
Overtime – M&R – We did not exchange or discuss this article in this session. We remain steadfast in our positions on NO mandatory overtime, limiting job continuation and pay for overtime bypass.
We are also working through the overtime distribution procedures, particularly how the overtime will be called.
Vacation – M&R & MLS – We are still waiting on the company to respond to our proposal.
Vacation – MCT – We have not received a counter proposal from the company on this article.
Holidays – M&R, MLS, MTS and MCT – We have narrowed this article down to holiday payment. We did not receive a proposal from the company this week.
Limited Duty- M&R, MLS, MTS and MCT – We did not exchange or discuss this article in this session.
