Brothers and Sisters:
The Association Fleet Negotiating Committee met with the company during the week of January 16th in Dallas/Fort Worth.
This week the Association received the following counter proposals:
Reduction in Force – there are substantial issues that need to be resolved prior to achieving an agreement.
Voluntary Furlough – the remaining outstanding issues were resolved.
Limited Duty – we realize the importance of this article and are committed to enhancing the language to protect the membership.
One Station Complex (TWU) – this article is contingent upon other articles being negotiated and those talks continue.
The Association passed the following counter proposals to the company and are awaiting their response:
- Hours of Work
- Limited Duty
Following productive dialogue, we reached a TA on Voluntary Furlough.
