United and IBT file with National Mediation Board

On Tuesday, February 5, United and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) jointly filed with the National Mediation Board (NMB) for mediation in the ongoing contract negotiations for Technical Operations maintenance controllers.
“We look forward to the NMB’s assistance as we take this important next step with the IBT toward reaching an agreement for our maintenance controllers,” said Labor Relations SVP Doug McKeen.United and the IBT have been in negotiations since April 2017. While much progress has been made during that time, the parties have asked the NMB for their assistance, which is common during negotiations like these. When NMB accepts the application for mediation, the schedule for future negotiations will be established by the NMB.
