Sisters and Brothers:
The joint Alaska Airlines Negotiating Committee continued negotiations with Alaska Airlines management August 14 -16, 2018, in Washington, D.C. This session was dedicated to COPS contract issues.
Represented by the Company were: Greg Mays, Vice President/Labor; Wayne Newton, Vice President/AOCS; Jeff Butler, VP/Inflight & Call Centers; Bob Hartnett, Labor Director; Denise Kliskey, COPS Labor Manager; Melinda Maher, Division Controller; and, Rebecca Meissner, Company Attorney.
Joining the Negotiating Committee were: James Carlson, Assistant Airline Coordinator; Kris Hannah, Grand Lodge Representative; and Brianna Gregory, Grand Lodge Representative.
The Committees exchanged proposals for the following articles:
6 – Part Time **Tentative Agreement**
7 – Overtime **Tentative Agreement**
14 – Sick Leave
28 – Home Agent **Tentative Agreement**
The significant progress made during this session brings us much closer to narrowing our non-economic issues that remain open.
The next negotiations session is scheduled for September 11-13, 2018, in Seattle, Washington.
There is one source of official communications regarding these negotiations – that is those issued by your Negotiating Committee.
Remember: United we stand, divided we beg.
