Hours of Service – M&R, MLS & MCT – We have reached an agreement in principle on this article and will reach a T/A once the QA, Planner & Technical Documentations Specialists group reach an agreement with the company on the section of this article that pertains to them.

General and Miscellaneous – We exchanged proposals on this article with the company in this session. This Article encompasses many facets of the CBA and continues to evolve as we progress through the negotiations process.
