Sisters and Brothers,

The Association Mechanic & Related/Stores Negotiating Committee met with American Airlines the week of August 22nd in New York. During this session, your committee held lengthy discussions with the company related to the Interim Letter of Agreement’s lump sum payout provision. If you believe your payout is incorrect, please discuss the issue with AA management and also notify your local Association representative. We will continue to work through any discrepancies our members discover as a result of the agreement.  In addition, your committee exchanged and discussed the following articles:

Training – M&R – We have reached a tentative agreement on this article.

Training – MCT We have reached a tentative agreement on this article.

Training – MLS We have reached a tentative agreement on this article.

Overtime – M&R & MLS – We gave a counter proposal on this article during this session.

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. We did not receive a proposal from the company this week.

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.
