• Tentative Agreement Info

 


Tentative Agreement Information Sessions

This Tentative Agreement (TA) is the combination of 3 separate and distinct Contracts (CAL/CMI/UAL).  Please keep in mind that some of the provisions in the TA are compromises between us and our counterparts at CAL and CMI.  These compromises were necessary in order to negotiate with UA from one unified position.  While some may not like ‘all’ of the provisions, the TA managed to maintain important protections such as Scope, Base closure protections, Foreign National Sideletter, and the Exchange rate Sideletter among others.  Take the time to read through all the information including the full text of the TA which is now available online at ourcontract.org. 

There will be many opportunities for you to ask questions, and get clarifications prior to the TA vote opening on July 15th, at 12pm ET (July 16th, 1:00am Japan Standard Time) and closing on Friday, August 12th, at 12pm ET (Saturday, August 13th, at 1:00am Japan Standard Time).

Locally we will be available in the NRTSW crew lounge on the following dates and times.  (Revised schedule)

July 12:  2-5pm

July 13:  2-5pm

July 14:  2-5pm
