Coronaviruses can cause mild to moderate upper respiratory illnesses like the common cold. Occasionally, they can cause lower respiratory tract illnesses like pneumonia or bronchitis –but this is more common with people who have underlying health conditions that have weakened their immune system.
Sisters and Brothers,
Talks continue by phone between the Association Leadership and American Airlines in reaching a JCBA. As such, we wanted to update the membership and dispel a false narrative, speculation and rumors some may be spreading.

TWU VOL BENEFITS DIRECT DEPOSITE TRANSITION UPDATE
To the membership:
As we navigate through the tedious process of direct deposit due to the company removal of the TWU VOL BENEFIT line, we would ask for your patience as we try to find the best solutions going forward.

Sisters and Brothers,
Over the past several weeks, the Association, the NMB and American Airlines have been working to reach the tentative agreement our members have been promised and rightfully deserve.
Technical Difficulties with the Direct Deposit Transition
Due to technical difficulties, the direct deposit transition is on hold. Please check back periodically for updates. We will send out an email when the site has been restored. Please accept our apologies for this inconvenience.
The Association leadership has pursued continuing negotiations on American Airlines with or without the presence of the National Mediation Board (NMB) with some limited success. After our last negotiating session closed November 15, we asked the Company to agree to meet this week. They declined.
The National Mediation Board has announced scheduled mediation dates for the first two weeks of December. We will meet with NMB members December 4th and 6th next week and December 9th through 12th the following week.
Our intention will be, as it always has been, to bring the best in industry contract to our membership. We are fully prepared to reach conclusion to these negotiations if the Company is ready and willing to step up to the plate and get it done.
