BROTHERS AND SISTERS:
The Association Fleet Negotiating Committee met with the company during the week of January 16th in Dallas/Fort Worth.
This week the Association received the following counter proposals:
Reduction in Force – there are substantial issues that need to be resolved prior to achieving an agreement.
Voluntary Furlough – the remaining outstanding issues were resolved.
Limited Duty – we realize the importance of this article and are committed to enhancing the language to protect the membership.
One Station Complex (TWU) – this article is contingent upon other articles being negotiated and those talks continue.
