Terms Agreed to for Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement
A few moments ago, our Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) and the company came to an agreement on the terms of a joint collective bargaining agreement. The parties will work to finalize the language this weekend for review by the Joint Master Executive Council (MEC), including all (CAL, CMI, UAL) Local Presidents. These directly elected leaders of all 25,000 Flight Attendants, will meet in Chicago on Monday and Tuesday, June 27 & 28.
The Tentative Agreement is only official upon approval by the Joint MEC.
We thank National Mediation Board Member Linda Puchala and mediator Cathy McCann for mediating these final talks to help reach agreement.
We know everyone is eager for details and we will work to get them to you as soon as possible following the Joint MEC Meeting. Help ensure all of our flying partners get official information from our union – get the latest news and sign up for updates at OurContract.org.
We wish to thank every Flight Attendant who took part in supporting our negotiations. We are Stronger Together and Better Together.
