Negotiations update 2013/11/07
November 7, 2013
National Mediation Board (NMB) facilitated negotiations between United and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, representing United’s technicians and related employees, concluded without agreement on Nov 7, 2013. United has filed for mediation with the NMB as the next step in reaching an agreement.
To date, United has achieved joint collective bargaining agreements for more than half of its represented co-workers, including pilots, fleet services, passenger services, stores and reservations co-workers. Those joint agreements were also reached through mediation with the assistance of the NMB. We also have separate agreements with our flight attendants and technicians from each subsidiary.
