5,500 Aircraft Maintenance Technicians And Related Employees To
Review, Vote In Coming Weeks
The Teamsters Union and United
Airlines Inc. have reached a tentative agreement on a contract for
the 5,500 aircraft technicians and related employees throughout the
U.S., Teamsters General President James P. Hoffa said in a news
release Friday. This is the first contract negotiated by the
Teamsters for the group since the workers voted to join the union
in March 2008.
"This tentative agreement marks the start of new day for United
mechanics," Hoffa said. "This contract makes significant gains in a
number of key areas where our members felt they had lost ground in
previous contracts. Our negotiating team made addressing these
areas their number one priority and did an outstanding job."
Details of the contract will not be
released until after it has been presented to and reviewed by the
membership in the coming weeks. The union's negotiation team is
currently working on the scheduling of membership meetings and
securing a date for the ratification vote.
"This is a historic step in the continuing merger process of
United and Continental Airlines," said Airline Division Director
David Bourne. "I would like to congratulate and commend the hard
work and dedication of the union negotiating team, and also want to
acknowledge the positive working relationship exhibited by United's
management and negotiators during this two-year process."
