United Contract Negotiations Update

02 July 2024

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Last week, your IAM District 141 United Airlines Negotiating Committee, with your invaluable support, met with United Airlines management and began Section Six negotiations on the Fleet Service, Passenger Service, Storekeepers, Maintenance Instructors, Security Officers, Central Load Planners, and Fleet Technical Instructors and Related collective bargaining agreements (CBA).

The negotiations last week focused primarily on the Passenger Service contract. Much discussion took place regarding Agent on Demand (AOD), language interpreters, and temporary assignments. The temporary assignment discussions also pertained to the Fleet Service CBA.

No tentative agreements were reached. However, good, spirited dialogue was had and we hope to come to resolution regarding these important issues during our next negotiations session.

Negotiations will continue the week of 15 July, 2024 and we plan to continue our focus on these areas of Article One. We will also bring in the Fleet Technical Instructors and Related and our Central Load Planners sub-committees to begin Article One discussions on those two contracts.
We remain optimistic that we can reach tentative agreements by the end of the year or the first quarter of 2025, however, for this to happen,

United management must be serious and committed to providing us, the IAM members who have turned this airline around and have created one of the most profitable airlines in the world, the fair contract that we deserve.

Your unwavering support is appreciated and necessary to obtain the contract each and every IAM member employed by United Airlines deserves.

We will provide an update after our July negotiating session.

In solidarity,

Your Negotiating Committee
