Twu Aa Tentative Agreement

“Our Maintenance and Fleet Service team members are the best in the business and work incredibly hard to care for our customers,” said Doug Parker, President and CEO of American Chairman and Fleet Service. “They deserve contracts that have significant improvements in wages, quality of life and job protection. Preliminary agreements respect all of this – and more. We appreciate the negotiators of the association and the companies that have worked so hard to join us until today, as well as the National Mediation Board for their advice. The interim agreements provide industry with the best protection against outsourcing and the safety of iron use. These agreements require immediate increases between 4% and 18%. These increases, combined with the 2016 interim wages, have increased pay rates from 23% to 53% since the merger of American Airlines and US Airways. These agreements also offer the industry`s best profit-sharing formula, which includes bonuses of $3,000 to $6,000, increases premium payments, maintains generous improvements in retirement plans, affordable health insurance options, and ensures each member`s work at their current location. The interim agreements are subject to ratification by members of the Maintenance And Fleet Service, who are represented by the Association. Details of the agreements will be given by the association to its members in the coming weeks. The agreements are worth $4.2 billion and provide more than 30,000 employees with salaries, benefits, work rules, job security and pension plans, as the union, the TWU-IAM Association, said on its website. They are still subject to ratification by union members. “The negotiating team had the opportunity to quickly accept a substandard contract or to do the hard and laborious work to get the best possible contract,” said Sito Pantoja, president of the association, and alex Garcia, vice president.

“Together, the terms of these agreements after more than four years are proof that we have followed the right path and that we have obtained the best contracts in the aviation sector. We thank the members of the TWU-IAM association for their solidarity and patience. After almost five months of intense negotiations, in the midst of a national crisis and protests, Local 252 reached a preliminary agreement with Transdev on 3 June, which guarantees large profits to its transit members. “It was a long struggle, with 13 sessions during a pandemic, New York State and Nassau County in poverty with little […] WASHINGTON, January 30, 2020 – The TWU-IAM Association announced today that it has entered into tentative agreements with American Airlines for five new collective agreements (JCBAs) worth $4.2 billion for more than 30,000 members of Mechanic – Related, Fleet Service, Maintenance Control, MLS/Stores and Maintenance Training Specialist. Interim agreements provide the industry with peak wages, benefits and working conditions. One of the main stumbling blocks was the U.S. initiative to outsource future maintenance work, which the union says will be protected by the new agreements. “Preliminary agreements respect all of that – and more,” Parker said.

The Association and American Airlines have reached an agreement on the implementation of certain elements of the JCBAs. The following positions include salary, retirement and certain benefits that are most important to our membership: the impact of the severe pandemic of COVID 19 on the operation of the company has created uncertainty about the ability to predict specific implementation dates for certain contractual positions that the company must hire.
