MEC 9-12 Update = (Profit Sharing) Lawsuit to Vacate Arbitrator’s Award

Date: January 29, 2020


As previously reported, on April 29, 2019 the United Master Executive Council filed a lawsuit in federal court against United seeking to vacate the arbitrator’s award in MEC 9-12.  Pursuant to the court’s order regarding scheduling, both AFA and United filed motions with the court. Our motion seeks an order vacating the award and remanding it to further proceedings; United seeks an order affirming the award and dismissing the case. Briefing on both motions was completed in November 2019.  While our attorneys think it likely a decision will be issued in the first half of 2020, there is no time limit for the court to issue its decision. As additional information becomes available, we will share that with you.
