Negotiations continued in Washington, D.C. this week, with little movement from the company being made towards completed tentative agreements. In light of the unfortunate lack of progress, the Executive Committee is considering next steps and an appropriate response.

Sisters and Brothers,
Since the resumption of mediated negotiations between the Association and American Airlines on September 16, the parties have met multiple days over five weekly sessions. Although progress has been slow, it has been positive and productive.

AMERICAN AIRLINES CONTINUES ITS LAWSUIT AGAINST ITS EMPLOYEES :
Brothers and Sisters, :
In its continued efforts to stymie negotiations for Joint Collective Bargaining Agreements with the TWU-IAM Association, American Airlines is pushing forward with its frivolous lawsuit in a Fort Worth, TX Federal Court. :
A calendar has been set by the court for the parties to meet in two pre-trial settlement conferences during the middle of June. If a settlement is not reached, a trial is scheduled for the week of July 1, 2019 in Federal Court in Fort Worth. :
The Association continues to demand that American lives up to its obligation and promises to resume negotiations. The Company can’t hide behind a lawsuit smokescreen to prevent reaching contractual agreements. The negotiating table is the only arena where the contracts can be resolved. :
Remain unified and do not back down from telling your management that American’s negotiators need to get back to the table and get the deal done.
