NOT ENOUGH SUPPORT
The National Mediation Board (NMB) dismissed the Aircraft Mechanic Fraternal Association's (AMFA) application to conduct a representation election among mechanic and related workers at American Airlines.
The Board reaffirmed its standard for calculating the showing of interest in American Airlines, Inc.,
31 NMB 539, 552 (2004) involving the same group of employees at issue in this case.
Number of Potential Eligible Voters
There were 13, 211 (less duplicate entries) Potential Eligible Voters on the List originally
submitted by the Carrier on December 4, 2020.
The Association’s Executive Negotiating Committee met this week in Washington, D.C. with members of the National Mediation Board and representatives from the carrier.
Limited progress was made this week, and that is encouraging.
Our goal is not simply to reach an agreement with the company. Our goal is to reach the right agreement for Association members. We need to ensure any agreement provides the wages, benefits and terms that you have earned and deserve. That is why your continued patience and solidarity is so important.
Future negotiation dates are currently being discussed with American and the NMB.
