As you know, pursuant to the Railway Labor Act, mechanic and related at both s-CAL and s-UAL are working under two separate Collective Bargaining Agreements and will continue to do so until such time an amalgamated Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement (JCBA) is reached between the Union and the Company.
In early February, Principal Officers and Business Agents from the pertinent Locals will be meeting to discuss ideas, strategies and the structure/size of the System Steering Committee (committee whose primary purpose is to bring proposals forward for the JCBA), Negotiating Committee and Seniority Integration Committee.
In an effort to get a head start on collecting the local membership's ideas/proposals for the upcoming JCBA negotiations, your local representatives have put together the following UAL amalgamated contract proposal form.
Please take some time to share your ideas for contract language changes on these forms. After completing the form, please turn it in to a Steward and/or Local Representative or Fax to the EWR Union office at 973-681-2752.
Future updates will follow the February meetings. Please continue to remain informed by reading the "Teamsters Airline Division Week in Review" and "The Mechanics Dispatch". Both may be viewed on our local BLOG at: www.ibt210mx.typepad.com or www.teamsterair.org
Should anyone wish to get in the local email database to join the hundreds who currently receive the updates directly, please contact the EWR Union office at 973-681-2750.
Thank you and if you have any questions feel free to call.
