In an announcement that brings us one step closer to joint contract negotiations for more than 30,000 Mechanic and Related, Fleet Service and Stores employees at American Airlines, the National Mediation Board (NMB) today ruled that the carrier is operating as a single transportation system.

Today's determination is a necessary precursor to certifying the TWU-IAM Association, an alliance formed by both unions after the merger of American Airlines and US Airways, as the collective bargaining representative for the above employees at the merged carrier.

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.

"The IAM is proud of the work the Negotiating Team has done in order to complete the difficult task of bringing their full work group together," said IAM District 141 President Rich Delaney. "This is the fifth joint agreement reached between IAM District 141 and United Airlines that has brought the legacy carriers' employees into single contracts since the merger of Continental and United in 2010."



The 165 instructors provide skilled instruction and support for United's flight training centers in flight crew and emergency procedures training. The instructors also develop and implement necessary training programs needed to accomplish this critical instruction.
