UA and IBT to join NMB for status conference
May 11, 2016
The National Mediation Board advised UA and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters today that the parties are to attend a status conference on May 23 in Washington, D.C. At the status conference, we expect the NMB, UA and IBT will discuss the next steps in the mediation process. We remain strongly committed to reaching a joint collective agreement for technicians like those we reached with the International Association of Machinists and the Air Line Pilots Association, and we look forward to working with the IBT and NMB to achieve this goal as soon as possible. We’re also hard at work in negotiations with AFA for a flight attendant contract, with negotiations scheduled for next week.
