UPDATE
Negotiations resumed the week of June 24, 2013 at Air Transport District Lodge 142 in Kansas City,MO.
The parties in attendance were as follows: Mike Ryan Vice President Labor Relations, Tammy Shaffer
Director Labor Relations CSS, Dan Kusek Senior Manager Labor Relations Ground Operations, Kevin
Minchey Attorney Legal Department, Cindy Nagle Senior Manager Labor Relations and Greg Thorsen
Senior Director Employee Benefits.

Greg Thorsen provided a comprehensive presentation for Article XII Medical Leaves of Absence and
Article XIII Sick and Occupational Injury for consideration by District Lodge 142.
The new direction that the Company believes is necessary to maintain our competitive edge in the
industry, is a departure from our history and as proposed requires significant sacrifice from our
membership.

Additionally, discussions centered around the remaining unresolved proposals in the following articles:
Article II
Scope of Agreement

Article III
Status of Agreement

Article IV
Definitions

Article V
Classifications

Article VI
Hours Of Service

Article VII
Overtime

Your continued patience and solidarity are greatly appreciated.
Future negotiating dates are being scheduled and will be available on our District 142 website at
