Atlas Air and Southern Air ExCo’s, Management Settle on Framework Agreement to restart negotiations

In a letter to their respective membership, the ExCo’s of Atlas Air and Southern Air announced that a Framework Agreement had been agreed upon to restart contract negotiations.

In the letter, they said: “After more than a year of continuous discussions, the union, Atlas Air, Inc. and Southern Air, Inc. have settled on a process by which to begin direct negotiations for a single labor contract covering both the Atlas and Southern crew members.  This agreed-upon process provides the structure and important details that will govern the negotiations, which we anticipate will begin within the next few weeks.   Both the union and the carriers believe that this is a positive step and look forward to productive negotiations.”

In concluding the message, the ExCo’s said: “The parties will begin discussions to commence negotiations as governed by the process agreement discussed above.”
