AFAIK, UAL ALPA still hasn't agreed to the crew issue for the A350. Also, I've seen a comment on FB by an ALPA rep that stated the same - no agreement yet.
They have at least 5 years to find a solution.
As for ALPA they were upset about the 65 737NG's and the dilution of the blended rate. They don't have that worry any longer. Be careful what ALPA wishes for, it often isn't in the best interest of the pilot group. ALPA is a political body filled with egos. They are not the savior they claim to be.
Where did I espouse the virtues of ALPA? I didn't. Rather, I was correcting KarelXWB's statement that the A350 crew rest issue had ended - it apparently hasn't; that's all.
