United & ALPA Agreement in Principle on New Contract
May 27, 2022
On May 13, 2022, we congratulated our brothers, sisters and family at ALPA who reached an Agreement in Principle on a new contract with United Airlines.
There is considerable work remaining to convert the AIP terms into final contract language, as well as other items that need to be agreed upon regarding implementation of any new contract provisions.
The agreement is subject to a ratification process, which includes final documentation, review and consideration by the ALPA Master Executive Council and membership voting.
We are aware that there is discussion in the field about items that ALPA is rumored to have accomplished in this most recent round of bargaining. In point of fact, the tentative agreement language has yet to be finalized.
Unless and until a tentative agreement is reached and released to ALPA Members for their consideration and ratification, anything you may hear about items ALPA may have accomplished in bargaining should be considered a rumor. Speculation about any rumored achievements should be avoided.
As additional information becomes available first to ALPA Members, we will work to share details on this achievement.
