Negotiations: US Airways
Throughout the past week District 141 conducted information meetings for US Airways members across the country regarding the status of contract negotiations. More than 80% of members had the opportunity to listen to and talk with members of the District 141 US Airways Negotiating Team and understand the current state of our talks with the company. The provisions of the Railway Labor Act were explained so members could understand where we are within the legal negotiation process and what it means to officially seek a release from mediation. The exchange of ideas and comments was very productive and helpful to our Team. Meetings will continue during the coming weeks as we await instructions from the National Mediation Board as to a return to the bargaining table.
