Negotiations Update 2012/08/31

United and the IAM continued negotiations this week. The parties participated in formal training from the National Mediation Board on facilitated bargaining procedure.

The committees for Hours of Service/Overtime, Classification/Furlough and Recall, and Paid Time Off (vacation, holidays, sick time) met again this week. An additional committee was established for Seniority issues. We reached agreement in principle on several issues within each group.

Next week, the parties will meet again and a key area of discussion will be Reservations, especially the ResAnywhere, a program that allows reservations employees to work from home. Using the NMB's process, we are confident the two parties can come to agreement.
