FAA NOT Happy With Latest NATCA Statement

'NATCA Press Release Out of Touch With Current Proceedings'

In response to Friday's press release sent by John Carr, President of the National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA), FAA Administrator Marion Blakey made the following statement:

“John Carr has yet again proven himself out of touch with what is really happening at the negotiating table between the FAA and NATCA. Our negotiating team has not rejected NATCA's terms nor has it even seen the proposal Mr. Carr referenced in his release today. Where is this missing offer? Neither party has submitted its last and best offer and neither side has declared impasse. In fact, just today both parties agreed to take the weekend to review several outstanding articles, to include those dealing with pay and work rules, and to reconvene on Tuesday with the hopes of reaching a voluntary agreement. To say talks have stalled or concluded, as Mr. Carr did today, is simply wrong. From the beginning, the FAA has made clear its intentions to work with NATCA to achieve a voluntary agreement that is fair to the taxpayer, rewards performance, and promotes equity among our workforce. We look forward to resuming talks next Tuesday.”
