Negotiations update 2011/07/01

The Company and ALPA met again this week in Boston. The Company made proposals on the Training, Pilot Instructors (new section), Sick Leave, Workers Compensation and General sections of the contract, while the union made proposals on Vacancies and Vacations. After several exchanges this week, the Company and the union reached an Agreement in Principle on Vacancies, one of the significant staffing/work rules sections that the parties have been working on the past several months. The parties have now reached Agreements in Principle on 9 sections plus a Letter of Agreement covering Guam flying. The parties are also simultaneously engaged in a joint analysis of the costs involved in the various scheduling sections.

Negotiations will reconvene next Wednesday morning.
