maintenance instructorsMembers of the Fleet Technical Instructors/Ground School Instructors and Related Negotiating Team, along with District Lodge 141 and International Transportation Department representatives have reached a tentative agreement with United Airlines. This Agreement brings together the Instructors classifications of both legacy United Airlines and legacy Continental Airlines into a single contract. The 165 members of this group provide skilled instruction and support for United’s Flight Training Centers in areas of Flight Crew and Emergency Procedures training and the development of the necessary training programs needed to accomplish this critical instruction.

The 4 year Agreement provides for immediate wage and benefit improvements, retroactive/signing bonus payments, increased employment security for all classifications and increased pension benefits.

The IAM is proud of the work the Negotiating Team has done in order to complete the difficult task of bringing their full group together. We also recognize the willingness of United’s Negotiating Team to work through the difficult issues that have led to this Agreement. This Agreement is the 5th joint agreement reached between United Airlines and District Lodge 141 that has brought the legacy carriers’ employees into single contracts since the merger of Continental and United in 2010.

This Agreement is subject to membership review and ratification. More details of the Agreement and information regarding the ratification process will be posted as quickly as possible.

Final Payment

District 141 members, employed by United Airlines in the Fleet Service, Public Contact, and Stores classifications, have begun receiving the payments representing the full and final distribution of monies owed to them through the signing bonus agreement included in our current contract.

In addition, members that have been determined to be eligible for irregular lunch payment, as a result of grievances filed after November 1, 2013, will receive that amount, included in the special check.

When researching and finalizing outstanding grievances and appeals to the initial and supplemental payment of the signing bonus it was determined that an additional amount of money committed to this payment remained. As with the previous distributions, this payment is based on a fixed amount of money per year and calculated by Company Seniority to a maximum of 20 years. Work status – full time/part time – also is used to determine each individual amount.

When these payments were negotiated, District 141 committed that every available dollar would be distributed among our membership. Even though this current amount is relatively small it is the members’ money and has now been paid in full. The fixed amount per year of service has been calculated at $1.54 for Full Time members and $.77 for Part Time members. Members that had combined service in both work status’ between April 2013 and November 2013 will receive an adjusted amount.

If members have questions regarding this payment they are asked to contact the Local Committee or Assistant General Chair for explanation.

Mr Smisek continues to get attention from Congress.

Review:

28 August 2014: Mr Smisek receives another letter from members of Congress concerned with United Airlines treatment of BOS employees.

05 August 2014: United Airlines' Outsourcing Jobs to Company That Pays Near Poverty Wages Is Shameful

The letter to Mr. Smisek from U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA) and Reps. Bruce Braley (D-IA) and Dave Loebsack (D-IA) call on the United chief executive to provide them with a comparison of wages and benefits for IAM-represented employees and the contract workers slated to replace them.

Airlines for America tell Congress that they "enhance job security, pay and benefits for airline employees." as they ask Congress for their tax breaks.

Only Unions have fought for workers job security, pay and benefits, Airlines Outsource at poverty wages at the first chance they get regardless of their profits or what they tell Congress. Actions speak louder than words.
