Covers The 15,000 FAs Flying For United Pre-Merger
United Airlines Flight Attendants successfully reached a
tentative agreement with management late last week for 15,000
pre-merger United Flight Attendants. The agreement was reached with
oversight from the National Mediation Board (NMB) through expedited
mediation with airline management.
"There can be no doubt that if it were not for the clear
commitment of United Flight Attendants in supporting our elected
leadership and negotiating committee, we would not have been able
to achieve these results. Pending leadership approval, the United
AFA members will carefully consider the tentative agreement for
ratification. Together, we will better our lives and our profession
through our solidarity as we work towards improving our future.
Next, we will achieve a Single Contract that is good for Flight
Attendants, good for the company and unite us all," said Greg
Davidowitch, president of AFA at United Airlines.
The Agreement is now subject to approval by the United Master
Executive Council (MEC), made up of the locally elected leaders
from the 14 United Flight Attendants domiciles. The MEC will meet
in a special session on Sunday, January 8, 2012. Until that time,
full details of the Tentative Agreement will not be made public. If
approved by the MEC, the Tentative Agreement will be sent to the
Membership for careful consideration and ratification.
