Brothers and Sisters,

Negotiations Update: Day 1 of Mediation

Both parties worked late last night and were able to come to an agreement on two articles. Collectively, we chose two articles both parties believed we could reasonably get through, and with assistance from the mediation team, we did. Those are Articles 3 and 17. 

  • In Article 3 (Responsibilities), the Union was able to gain the ability to jointly develop merit raise criteria. This helps the Union to assist mechanics that are not first-class that display the skill to progress forward without having to wait for 1000 hrs.
  • In Article 17 (Holidays), both parties ended by agreeing to no change. 

We are meeting again today in hopes of moving forward to a fair agreement.

United We’re One, Divided We’re Done.

In Solidarity,

Local S6 Negotiating Committee
