United Airlines and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) union have reached tentative agreements covering seven separate workgroups, including fleet service workers, passenger service workers, storekeepers, central load planners, maintenance instructors, fleet technical instructors, and security officers. 

These agreements are intended to provide workplace improvements for covered union members while more comprehensive agreements are negotiated. Union negotiators will begin preparing for new rounds of contract talks in the next few months.

The agreements will provide the highest overall compensation for every covered workgroup and extend outsourcing protections for 17 stations. The deals will extend “no furlough” rules for employees, based on seniority, by twenty years, to June 2019.

The tentative agreements will also include a Ratification bonus for the union, giving members $110 for each year with the company. If ratified, the union will see job protections and pay to improve immediately on the ratification date. The union will also get a $45 million Ratification bonus, which will begin going out in the first pay period after ratification.

“The new agreements will provide immediate job protections and pay increases for our members,” said Mike Klemm, the IAM Union’s District President who helped lead the negotiations. “The Ratification bonus will give our union a significant boost and recognize our members’ years of service to the company.”

The IAM union has been negotiating with United Airlines since 2019, but talks were put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Negotiations resumed in December 2022 and concluded earlier this month. 

Union Members in good standing will begin ratification votes on all the agreements on April 24 by electronic ballot. The voting period will last until May 1 at 6:00 pm, when all votes will be tallied. 

Local committees are holding informational town hall and break room meetings at airports nationwide, explaining how the agreements will impact each workgroup. A list of dates for the sessions has been published online.

If ratified, the agreements will position United Airlines to outcompete other airlines in a tight labor market by increasing lead pay by $3/hour and boosting wages in some cases to over $40/hour. They will also insource work at 17 airports nationwide and prevent outsourcing for more employees.

The IAM union’s announcement of the tentative agreements is a welcome development for United Airlines, which has faced uncertainty in recent years due to labor disputes and financial challenges. With these agreements, United Airlines is positioning itself to remain competitive in the airline industry and retain its workforce in a tight labor market.

The announcement also has implications for other airlines in the industry, particularly those that may be facing negotiations with the Machinists Union in the near future. If ratified, these agreements could set industry standards for compensation and job security, making it more difficult for other airlines to compete for workers in a tight labor market.

Transportation Workers Gather for the 2023 North American Transportation Conference

Transportation Workers Gather for the 2023 North American Transportation Conference

 Transportation Workers Gather in Las Vegas for the 2023 North American Transportation Conference

IAM141.org

Las Vegas, NV – On April 2, transportation workers and industry leaders convened in Las Vegas for the 2023 North American Transportation Conference to address the ongoing challenges workers face in the sector. The Conference brought together notable speakers, including Edison Fraser, Chief of Staff for the Machinists Union; Richie Johnsen, General Vice President of the Machinists Union; Sarah Nelson, head of the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA); and Department of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

One of the key issues discussed during the Conference was the alarming trend of approximately one railroad derailment per day in the United States. Experts called for an end to the practice of precision and just-in-time rail scheduling, which they argued has contributed to increased risks and the potential for accidents.

Labor advances were also a major topic, with conference attendees focusing on improving transportation-sector working conditions and addressing worker grievances. The recent Agreement in Principle for seven contracts at United Airlines, covering more than 32,000 front-line workers, was presented as a positive development in this area. Conference attendees enthusiastically decided to ratify the Agreements in Principle at United Airlines while addressing ongoing contract talks at the company.

The Conference’s atmosphere was described as hardworking and sometimes raucous, with participants actively engaged in discussions and debates on the various issues facing transportation workers. The Conference served as a platform for industry leaders, union representatives, and workers to come together and collaborate on solutions to the sector’s pressing concerns.

While specific resolutions and action plans are yet to be announced, the 2023 North American Transportation Conference succeeded in shedding light on the critical issues facing transportation workers today. The event has paved the way for further collaboration and action to address these challenges and improve the lives of those working in the industry.

Johnsen led the 2023 North American Transportation Conference. These influential figures played a significant role in facilitating discussions and fostering collaboration among transportation industry stakeholders. Their leadership contributed to the conference’s success, ensuring that critical issues like air rage incidents and the safety of airline workers were brought to the forefront and addressed by critical decision-makers like Secretary Buttigieg.

Machinists Union Political Activists were supportive of Secretary Buttigieg’s comments. 

“The work the DOT and Justice department have done to help reduce violence against airline workers is a huge benefit to all of us, said Rich Jakubowski, a legislative chairman from Chicago. “If the administration is able to get the FAA reauthorization signed this year our members and the flying public will continue to see positive safety improvements.”
