Sisters and Brothers:
Your negotiation committee met with ExpressJet the week of December 11, 2017 in Washington DC.
After much dialogue regarding compensation and parity we remain disappointed that the company was not prepared to negotiate an agreement that you could be proud of.
Some of the major difficulties we are encountering continue to be the differences in the two pay scales and the current financial position of the company. While were not able to come to an agreement this session we continue to explore creative solutions to this issue.
The mediator has not assigned any future dates; however, your committee has once again made it clear to the company that we are prepared to meet with or without the mediator to negotiate a joint CBA and complete a merged seniority list.
It is important now more than ever to remain in solidarity. Solidarity is Victory!
