United Contract Negotiations Update: Job Security Focus in This Week’s Talks
27 May 2022
This week, IAM District 141 and United Airlines management continued contract talks in Chicago, IL. The IAM Negotiations Committee began the week by presenting United management negotiators with a comprehensive list of issues that must be resolved satisfactorily if an expedited deal is to be reached by the mutually agreed upon deadline of August 1, 2022.
The talks then focused on the issue of job security/scope of work, as the Union reminded the Company that no deal could be reached unless the memberships’ top priority of multi-faceted job security is addressed fully and to IAM members’ satisfaction.
In the contract survey and proposal process, IAM members clearly stated that job and work status security and scope of work are top priorities. United CEO Scott Kirby has continually said that IAM members at United deserve an industry-leading contract, which includes rock-solid scope of work, job and work status protections.
Negotiations will continue the week of June 6.
