UAL CAL CMI Negotiations Update – April 28, 2013

Negotiations Update

The parties met in Phoenix this week, aided by Senior Mediator Pat Sims and Mediator Michael Kelleher of the NMB. Comprehensive proposals were exchanged that included wages, benefits, retirement security and scope.

After the initial proposals were made, subcommittees worked towards understanding the basis of the proposals. In addition the continued work of finalizing language continued.

The beginning of the week found the parties far apart in their positions. Progress was made in subcommittee work through the week and it is expected that further comprehensive proposals will be made the week of the 29th when the parties reconvene in Chicago.

Seniority Integration Update

The seniority integration committee met this week in Phoenix. The committee worked on the craft seniority list identifying ties between the three lists. Several discrepancies were found and the committee requested further information from the company. The committee will continue its work on the list in an effort to finish before the end of May.  

Furloughed members urged to update their addresses

Members on furlough are advised to keep their addresses current with the company while on layoff. It is predicted that there will be many movements this year and there have been several members that have been removed from the seniority list because old addresses were on file when notices were sent.

If you are in touch with a furloughed member, please forward this information to them. Updates may be emailed to: ESC@united.com . The ESC will provide a fax number and ask members to send the address change accompanied with a signature.
