IAM District Lodge 141 and 142 Negotiations Committee members, District Lodge 141 and 142 leadership and Transportation Department officials met yesterday in Charlotte, NC to continue preparations for joint contract negotiations for Mechanic and Related, Fleet Service and Stores workers at American Airlines.

TWU-IAM Association bargaining strategies and priorities were discussed and previous seniority committee meetings were reviewed.

“Yesterday’s meetings were very productive and the business of the Association is moving along,” said IAM District 141 and 142 Presidents Rich Delaney and Dave Supplee. “We eagerly await a single carrier determination so the representation process is triggered.”

The National Mediation Board (NMB) has yet to rule on the TWU-IAM Association’s request for a single carrier determination. Although there is no specific timetable for the NMB to issue a determination, a ruling is expected soon.

“Getting to the table and achieving the industry’s best contracts for Mechanic and Related, Fleet Service and Stores workers at American Airlines is our single priority,” continued Delaney and Supplee. “We look forward to the TWU-appointed negotiators joining the process.”

The TWU-IAM Association represents more than 30,000 Mechanic and Related, Fleet Service and Stores workers at American Airlines and is the largest union at the carrier.

TWU–IAM Association Update

IAM representatives of the Joint Seniority Integration Committee met last week in Dallas, TX to discuss and examine issues related to seniority list integration. The IAM also named their respective joint contract negotiating committees comprised of members from Districts 141 and 142 (see below).

The TWU–IAM Associations were formed in May, 2013 after the merger of American Airlines and US Airways and is the largest union at the new American Airlines. The IAM and TWU both determined that joining forces would bring the best unity and strength to secure the joint contracts that Association represented members rightfully deserve.

While there are three separate and distinct Associations for negotiations and representation purposes (Mechanic & Related, Fleet Service and Stores), our combined strength will bring us the best contracts at the bargaining tables.

“We are excited about moving the Associations forward, so 30,000 ground workers at the new American can attain the industry’s best contracts at the World’s largest carrier,” said IAM District 141 and 142 Presidents Rich Delaney and Dave Supplee in a joint statement. “The new American just reported record third quarter profits. Now is the time to be prepared and get to the table.”
