UA and IBT to meet with NMB, continue work on agreement in principle
September 16, 2016
Last month, we jointly announced an agreement with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters for an industry-leading deal for technicians and related employees. So we were disappointed to hear from IBT today that their negotiations committee has voted against transitioning the language of the agreement in principle to a tentative agreement.
Our agreement in principle with the IBT still stands, and we remain in mediated negotiations. We look forward to continuing to work with the IBT on the language of the agreement, and we will rejoin the National Mediation Board and the union for a status conference on Sept. 26.
