Association, AA Executive Session Negotiations Continue

Brothers and Sisters,

The Executive Negotiating Committee met face to face with American Airlines this week in Washington DC. This session was focused on Maintenance Training Specialists (MTS) and was very productive. Non-economic articles were discussed. Constructive dialog in a productive environment helped the parties significantly narrow their positions in numerous articles that produced an agreement on most outstanding language issues. Complete Tentative Agreements were reached on:

Purpose of Agreement
Preamble
Safety & Health
Uniforms
Qualifications

When the parties reconvene both sides will be prepared to begin discussions on the Scope Article and remaining language issues for MTS.

Additional weeks have been added to the negotiating calendar as follows:

December 4 DCA
December 11 DFW
January 8 DCA
January 22 DCA
February 12 DCA
February 19 DCA

Fraternally,
