UAL, CAL Pilots Plan Picket Of UCH Shareholders Meeting

Pilots From Other ALPA Carriers Expected To Participate

Pilots for United and Continental Airlines, represented by the Air Line Pilots Association, Int'l (ALPA) will be conducting informational picketing at the site of the United Continental Holdings annual shareholders meeting on Tuesday, June 12, 2012 to mark the passing of a second year without a new contract. The pilots say the message they will convey to management, shareholders, passengers and the media that it is time to complete the end-game negotiations now underway with the Company.

The union says that if the Company cannot comply with the agreed-upon June 15 deadline to reach an agreement on a Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement, the pilots of United and Continental call on the National Mediation Board to grant our request for a release from mediation.

Informational picketing will be conducted at the site of the annual shareholders meeting, Crowne Plaza Hotel, 1605 Broadway, New York, N.Y., scheduled to begin at 0900 EDT and continue until the meeting ends.
 
ALPA says that two years past the announcement of the merger of United and Continental Airlines there is still no Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement. United and Continental pilots contract amendable dates are 12/31/2009 and 12/31/2008, respectively.

United and Continental pilots say they are still living and operating under bankruptcy-era and concessionary contracts. They say that United must respect the leadership role of its pilots and that begins at the bargaining table. The pilots of United and Continental call on United management to honor the June 15 deadline in reaching an agreement on a JCBA.

As a result of the merger, the two pilot groups have formed a joint negotiating committee and have been involved in negotiations with airline management for a new joint collective bargaining agreement since August 2010. Over the past 10 years, ALPA says that sixty-six percent of United's domestic flights are currently outsourced to regional carriers. The end result of this outsourcing is loss of jobs for pilots, all while United executives continue to lead the industry in executive compensation.
