Your IAM joint contract negotiations committee met from Monday, June 27, 2016 and continued through Thursday, June 30, 2016 in Denver, Colorado.
Your Committee exchanged proposals with the Company on the following Sections:
Section 5 Travel Expenses – After several exchanges and many discussions at the table we are very close to finalizing the outstanding issue related to per diem in an effort to reach a tentative agreement.
Section 11 Leaves of Absences – This section of the contract contains very important language and is effected by other sections of the contract which makes negotiation very complex. It is also one of the largest sections of the contract.
In addition, your committee spent substantial time researching bidding systems and their potential affect on quality of life for our members.
As of this session, the following sections of the JCBA have been tentatively agreed to:
Section 1, Recognition and Scope
Section 7, Seniority
Section 9, Sick Leave
Section 12, Furlough, Displacement & Recall
Section 13, Filling of Vacancies
Section 15, Uniforms
Section 16, Medical Examinations
Section 17, Investigation
Section 18, Grievance
Section 19, System Board of Adjustment
Section 20, Missing, Interned or Hostage
Section 21, Union Security or Dues Check Off
Section 23, General
Section 24, Management Rights
Section 25, Safety, Health and Security
Due to scheduling conflicts the mediator has cancelled our July session. However, we have discussed dates for August and September with the mediator and the Company. Once dates are finalized, they will be communicated to the membership.
