TA Update 2/24/2013

Rich Delaney, February 24, 2013­—This past week we conducted informational meetings for all station representatives from all groups and previous airlines to present the details of our recently announced tentative agreement with United Airlines. The meetings were conducted over two days in Chicago and allowed each specific group – s-UA PCE, s-CO Fleetservice, s-UA RSM, and s-CO PCE to receive the same information but evaluate and question how this agreement effects their classifications. In addition, members from Guam, who previously worked for Continental Micronesia Airlines attended and learned how they are becoming part of the entire membership.
The focus of the meetings was on the key areas of employment security, economics and benefits, and work rules. Each attendee receive a copy of the first draft of the contract, with the understanding that final proofreading and corrections will be made to the document prior to mailing copies of the agreement to each member’s home prior to ratification voting.

RICH DELANEY, FEBRUARY 16, 2013—Our recent announcement of reaching a tentative agreement with United Airlines has proven to be welcomed news by our members.
Although we have only been able to release limited information at this time, our membership has viewed the announcement as the end of the long waiting period for a settlement.
The focus now is to present the full and complete information regarding what is contained in our tentative agreement for a full review of members. The current process we are completing is the proofreading and printing of all materials, not only highlight sheets, for distribution and expla- nation. We expect this to be completed no later than midweek. At that time we will have a dedicated webpage that can be accessed through our District website,, which will provide information about the contract, provide schedules of planned explanation meetings, an interactive way to ask and receive answers to contract provision questions, and an outline of the voting process we will use for the membership ratification vote.

2/13/2013 Tentative Agreement for UAL
Rich Delaney—Download Today, February 13, 2013, District 141 and United Airlines are announcing we have reached a tentative agreement of labor contracts that will improve the lives of our 30,000 members and their families.

This has been a long and difficult process for our membership as we have worked towards bringing together, under single contracts, the employees of two historic airlines into an even larger and more history-making carrier. The obstacles that have slowed us down over the past four years have been overcome. The future, for our airline and, more importantly, for our membership, is brighter today as a result of these agreements.

The concerns and goals of our members guided our negotiating team through this entire process, and we believe we now have addressed them. Our members now have employment security unmatched in the industry. We have achieved total compensation that is the best in the industry, and rewards them for their past work and sacrifice in the service of their airline. We have stabilized and improved the health care coverage and cost structure for our members and their families for the present day as well as the future. And we have improved pensions so that our members may retire with the security and dignity they have earned and deserve. Our agreement for an early out opportunity will allow members to transition into life after United with comfort and confidence. Continue reading “2/13/2013 Tentative Agreement for UAL”
