NMB to American Workers: "Drop Dead"
Schedules, Then Cancels Negotiations
The Association had been demanding the Company meet with or without the NMB to resume and complete our negotiations.
June 6, 2019 :
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.
