United Airlines Technicians Update: Summit and Follow Up BA Meeting

As discussed in a previous dispatch, a summit with United Airlines (UA) Labor Relations leadership was held in Washington DC on July 21 at the IBT Headquarters. Several issues were discussed during that meeting. These issues included the UA System Board, the growing backlog of grievances due to the pandemic (especially regarding RIF and recall) and the scheduling of arbitration cases. Commitments were made to reduce the docket and to settle grievances at the lowest possible level as outlined in the collective bargaining agreement.

United Airlines Maintenance Controllers Update

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

As an update to the status of the new Controllers agreement at United Airlines, unfortunately we were unable to meet in August, and the same is true for September. This happened for a number of reasons on both sides of the table. We are scheduled to resume October 8&9th as well as the full last week of October.
