UAL Rejects TA. 3/30/2013

Rich Delaney, March 30, 2013—Download Rich Delaney, March 30, 2013­—Members of District 141 have emphatically rejected the tentative agreements reached with United Airlines. Member/tellers from across the country completed their week-long work of receiving, verifying, and counting ballots mailed in from every work group and station covered by the Ramp & Stores and Public Contact Employees agreements. Employees of legacy United Airlines, Continental Airlines, and Continental Micronesia Airlines participated in the ratification process and expressed their opinion.
District 141 will now notify the National Mediation Board of our request to enter into federally mediated negotiations covering all employee groups, as previously established within the protocol of interest based bargaining in August 2012.
Membership surveys will be conducted in the coming weeks to confirm the future positions of the Union on issues important to our members. Negotiations will resume based on the directives of the National Mediation Board.
District 141 thanks all participating members for their vote. The democratic process of membership ratification/rejection is the foundation of our Union and a fundamental right of membership. We respect the decisions made by the majority of our members and will proceed with their best interests in mind.
