On, March 18, 2016, United and AFA reached a settlement on the dispute identified in MEC Grievance 1-16, where AFA alleged the Company failed to identify and designate aircraft as required by the Protocol Agreement.
The AFA United MEC Grievance Committee hosted a Grievance Forum this week in Chicago. Local and Grievance leaders attended from from around our system including JFK, LHR, ORD, SFO, HNL, FRA, DCA, HKG, BOS, NRT, and IAH.
In conversations with the AFA Union leadership at pre-merger CAL and pre-merger UAL, following a review of all aircraft orders, the parties now understand that the first three (3) of the fourteen (14) 777-300ER aircraft can be traced directly to the pre-merger CAL order book.
Today, AFA and United published a joint statement announcing a settlement to AFA’s grievance related to the allocation of B787 aircraft. We have posted a Q&A document on our website which we will update as additional information become available. If you have any further questions, please contact your Local Council.
