TWU, IAM Alliance Moving Forward at American Airlines

Thu. January 29, 2015

To all American Airlines/US Airways
Mechanic and Related, Fleet Service and Store employees

Brother and Sister TWU-IAM members:

We expect the National Mediation Board will finally soon issue its ruling affirming that American Airlines and US Airways are operating as a single carrier for the purpose of employee representation. TWU and the IAM jointly petitioned the NMB for this purpose in August, 2014.

This long overdue declaration by the NMB will clear away a major hurdle to the start of new contract negotiations covering the 30,000 members of our joint TWU/IAM Employee Association. The AA/US Airways merger and a surging economy have catapulted the carrier to record profits, while our members continue to work under pre-merger contracts.
