Sisters and Brothers,
The Association Mechanic & Related/Stores Negotiating Committee met with American Airlines the week of July 25th at DFW, where we exchanged and discussed the following articles:
Training – M&R, MLS, & MCT– We exchanged these proposals again this week and the company continues to refuse to recognize your seniority for selection purposes, which may impact your overtime and field trip opportunities. Your Committee refuses to accept any proposal that could adversely impact you financially.
Overtime – M&R & MLS – The company responded to your Committee’s proposal on overtime but their response fell short of what is required to meet the needs of the membership. We have narrowed this down to a few issues, one of which is your right to refuse overtime.
Vacation – M&R & MLS – We are still waiting on the company to respond to our proposal.
Holidays – M&R, MLS, MTS & MCT – We have narrowed this issue down to how much we will be paid on a holiday.
Limited Duty- M&R, MLS, MCT & MTS – Your Committee passed this proposal to the company and is awaiting a response.
We remain united, committed and resolute in negotiating the JCBAs we deserve. We appreciate your continued solidarity, support and patience are imperative in helping us obtain this goal.
We will reconvene in DFW the week of August 1, 2016.
