Association Update: Holiday Arbitration

 November 7, 2022 

TO: TWU/IAM Association Members 

RE: Holiday Arbitration 

At the end of last week, we were informed by Arbitrator Dana Eischen that he needs to reschedule the Article 22 – Holiday Arbitration scheduled to start on December 1, 2022. At his request, we have rescheduled the hearing to begin on February 2 and, if necessary, Feb 3, 2023. 

We understand the frustration this delay poses; however, the change in schedule is beyond our control. 

Fraternally,

Association Update on Vaccine Mandates

Association Update on Vaccine Mandates

[supsystic-social-sharing id='4']

5 October 2021

RE:    AA Vaccine Mandate

Dear Sisters and Brothers:

Today the Association leadership meet via conference call with American Airlines leaders for an update on the Vaccine Mandate Policy and the potential enforcement process. The company explained the accommodation procedures, as it is currently being considered by the carrier, and is urging employees to file requests for such accommodations. The company will actively engage in processing and approving the requests on an individual basis in a reasonable manner. Although American Airlines is still in the process of determining what these accommodations will be, what is certain, unpaid leaves of absences are off the table.

It was further discussed that when an employee has submitted a request and awaiting the approval process, the employee can continue to work as normally scheduled. Once an approval has been granted and depending on the accommodation procedure, the employee will continue perform the work they are accommodated to perform without concern of violating the mandate.

This entire vaccine process will be updated regularly as things may change and we will continue to keep everyone posted on the latest events as they are known.  We continue to encourage our members who can receive the vaccine to do so, but also believe it is a choice a person needs to make without fear of losing their livelihood. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we navigate through these very challenging times.

First Association vs American Airlines Fleet Arbitration Case

[supsystic-social-sharing id='4']

First Association vs American Airlines Fleet Arbitration Case

April 20, 2021

The Association presented its first arbitration case.  At issue is the Control Crew Chief work that American Airlines transitioned from Crew Chiefs to management.   Testimony was given by representatives of the TWU and the IAM far-reaching from across the country, from Charlotte to Dallas and Los Angeles to Phoenix. 

The Association strongly defended the Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement and our membership.  We anticipate receiving the arbitrator’s decision sometime in mid to late summer.

We would like to extend our thanks to everyone who was involved in the preparation and presentation of the case, including the  Local Presidents, Assistant General Chairs, Crew Chiefs, Fleet Service Agents, and the law firm of Phillips, Richard, and Rind, P.A.  The firm put on an aggressive, comprehensive, and hard-fought case, as our members deserve.

While this was an Association Fleet dispute, it was fully supported by all elements of our Association.
