Sisters and Brothers,

The Association Mechanic & Related/Stores Negotiating Committee met with American Airlines the week of December 5th in Washington DC.  During this week’s session, the Committee exchanged and discussed the following articles:

Hours of Service – M&R, MLS & MCT – We have reached an agreement in principle on this article. We still need to incorporate the accreted groups into sections of this article, where applicable, before we reach a tentative agreement in its entirety.

Limited Duty- M&R, MLS, MTS and MCT –We presented a counter proposal on this article to the company during this session.

Overtime – M&R, MLS and MCT – 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.

Vacation – M&R, MLS & MCT – We are waiting for the company to respond to our proposal.

Holidays – M&R, MLS, MTS and MCT – We did not receive a proposal from the company this week.

The company presented your committee a briefing on the process for the True Up payment provided in the Interim Letter of Agreement.
