UAL, CAL, CMI Mechanic Update - February 26, 2016

Today, in a continuing and powerful display of solidarity at airports across the country, United Mechanics protested and passed out information to passengers in front of United’s ticket counters.  The message reflected in our 93% NO vote is clear; this substandard proposal is an insult to our craft, and is completely inadequate.  We will not rest until an industry leading agreement is in place for United’s Mechanics.

Ballots, along with the complete company proposal, should be in the mail this week and will be counted on January 25th.

The committee met in Houston this week to complete the process of vetting United’s final offer. Various subcommittees worked through the previous week on individual articles and LoA’s, comparing the UA offer to previously TA’d articles, items agreed to in principal, and items not discussed/agreed to in an effort to gain a complete understanding of exactly what United has proposed. These findings were combined into a single list of inconsistencies that were delivered to the UA negotiators this week. Once this list is reviewed and the proposal finalized, a vote will be scheduled.

It has been reported in several stations that supervisors are characterizing the proposal to be voted on as a “TA” or tentative agreement. This package is not a TA but rather what the Company termed as a closeout proposal.

Negotiations are scheduled to reconvene in Las Vegas for two weeks beginning on September 21st. Given the recent tone from the Company, we expect to continue making progress towards a tentative agreement that can be presented to the membership for ratification. The committee remains focused and dedicated to that end and so far have received no indication that the company has changed directions towards this goal as well.
