Negotiations Update 2011/08/01

All recent negotiations between United and IAM have been conducted by federal mediator, Tony Iannone. We have continued to address a few outstanding issues related to seniority, and have resolved most issues related to the seniority section of the agreement. We have also engaged in discussion around the Load Planner function, work from home for Reservations agents, aircraft towing, work assignment preferencing, and the specific qualifications and descriptions of certain jobs.

Sessions took place February 22- 24, March 7-9, April 19-22 and May 9-13. The regularity of the mediated sessions has been impacted by numerous scheduling factors and we are scheduled to resume the process with Mr. Iannone on August 16.

Additional mediated negotiating sessions are scheduled September 7-9.
