Oscar joins negotiations team in Chicago this week
July 28, 2016
United and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters continued negotiations for a joint collective agreement covering technician and related employees this week with the assistance of the National Mediation Board.
Oscar joined the negotiating committees at the bargaining table on Tuesday to discuss the state of the business and his personal commitment that reaching a joint agreement is one of United’s very top priorities.
Company and union representatives made good progress this week, reaching tentative agreements on 17 separate letters of agreement and three articles. On Thursday, the company made a comprehensive proposal addressing all open work rule issues as well as compensation, benefits and other economic items. To continue the progress we made this week, the NMB has scheduled the next mediation session for the week of August 8 in Reston, VA.
