US Airways, IAM-Trainers Reach Tentative Agreement

Fri Jan 07, 2005 4:06 am

US Airways Update
Negotiations – Transformation Plan
Company Rejects Union Offer of Settlement

To: All US Airways Mechanic and Related Employees and Maintenance Training Specialists

The offer your Negotiating Committee gave to the company yesterday, which provided for a resolution of the issues involved and would have protected the jobs of those we represent was rejected by the company late last night.

Contracts Terminated

Judge Mitchell ruled today in favor of the company’s motion to terminate our collective bargaining agreements, but the airline has agreed to maintain the status quo of the current agreements until ratification is determined.

Negotiations

We have reached a tentative agreement for the Maintenance Training Specialists. The ratification process will take place on a date to be determined.

Negotiations are continuing with the company for the Mechanic and Related employees. The company has indicated they will give us a final offer later today.

We will continue to keep you advised of all future developments as they occur.

Your patience and continuing support is appreciated.

Sincerely and fraternally,

William O'Driscoll
PRESIDENT-DIRECTING
GENERAL CHAIRMAN

The IAM-represented Maintenance Training Specialists, like the three TWU-represented groups, are a small group. Nonetheless, every little bit helps, and it's another work group with an agreement. US Airways has now reached agreements with 7 of 9 union-represented work groups.
