Earlier today, we concluded our bargaining session with Union leaders for your new Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement (JCBA). I want to share an update with you.
While the Company was prepared and expected to discuss and negotiate on the recently submitted supposals, negotiations this week were spent exclusively in internal caucus, rather than in direct discussions.
The Union advised the Company it would be submitting a response to our supposal, but that did not occur. We understand there is a lot to consider at these late stages and we look forward to receiving the Union’s comprehensive term sheet supposal so we can continue to address the issues most important to you.
We remain ready, willing and able to seek an agreement that focuses on the most critical concerns of our crewmembers.
Our next bargaining session is scheduled for December 14-18. We will continue to make our team available to complete your new agreement.
