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.
The reason the proposal is not a tentative agreement between the parties is because it contains some terms and conditions that were, either not fully negotiated, or were simply not agreed to by the rank and file Committee. The Committee acted on a request from the Company and voted to allow this proposal to come to a vote of the membership. This was considered by the Committee to be United’s final offer.
The details of United’s closeout proposal will be made available to you for review and a vote will be scheduled to allow the membership the opportunity to vote on United’s offer. Further information will be published in the near future.
