    Anyone know what the TA article titled Management Rights says? It's not from the TWU agreement. Is it new or something from the IAM CBA?

    Probably that management can run the business as they see fit.  It is in our TWU contract too but don't have a copy of it here at home.

    Thanks OldGuy, seems like I do remember that language somewhere in our CBA. Just thought they might have put "They Can Do That Brother" in a designated Article!

    Another thing is the IAM CBA is no longer on our locals website, convenient..

    I think I might have it on my work computer so if you message me an email address I'll send it to you.  I'll look for it as soon as I go into work in the morning.  I'm about 90% sure I have it though.

    This is a part of Article 28  from the TWU Contracts which I felt should have been removed for a long time:
     
     
    ARTICLE 28 - NO DISCRIMINATION, AND RECOGNITION OF RIGHTS AND COMPLIANCE
     
      28 B     The Union recognizes that the Company will have sole jurisdiction of the management and operation of its business, the direction of its working force, the right to maintain discipline and efficiency in its hangars, stations, shops or other places of employment, and the right of the Company to hire, discipline and discharge employees for just cause, subject to the provisions of this Agreement. It is agreed that the rights enumerated in this Article will not be deemed to exclude other preexisting rights of management not enumerated which do not conflict with other provisions of this Agreement.

    Once a tentative agreement is reached what is the general feeling about one passing a vote? Now of course I realize it's all about the devil in the details. But assuming its run of the mill contract and similar to other work groups will it pass?

    If there's a decent pay raise it will pass the majority will not read the TA to see what is being given up.

    Man, I sure hope not. If there is a time to read the full contract offer and note all changes, it is now. Everyone must know which contract they end up going by.  I know what you mean about just seeing the $$$$ signs, as we have the same problem with many here. I really hope your membership really takes the time to get educated on the differences and not just focus on the money.

    From Jetwire:

    Help American land Haneda slots
    Last week American submitted an application to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) proposing to operate daily, year-round, nonstop service to Tokyo Haneda (HND) from LAX and DFW. In February, American launched LAX-HND service using one of four nighttime slot pairs available to U.S. carriers. Going forward, six U.S. carrier flights will be available between the U.S. and HND – five during the day and one at night. Both of the flights American seeks utilize daytime slots. Learn more about the application on Jetnet. Employees and customers can show their support for American’s proposal by signing the petition at aa.com/takeaction and by tweeting using the hashtag #LetAAFlyHaneda.

    Give me an industry comparable contract and maybe, just maybe I'll scratch your back!!

    Too bad the association can not think outside of the box. I'd like to see a change in how shift differential is approached. Use a % of base pay to ease the pain of undesirable shifts. Say a 5% for afternoons, 10% for midnights and a 15% for working a weekend day. I know of other jobs and industry that pays comparable differentials. However by going off the dispatcher contract. It looks like we will be stuck with the same tired old differentials.

    Well, if we're going to mirror the dispatchers contract in compensation items, it then must also include the longevity pay of $5 per hr if over 20yrs.

    Sisters and Brothers:
     
    The Mechanic & Related/Stores Negotiating Committee met with American Airlines the week of April 25th in Washington, D.C. During this week’s sessions, your Negotiating Committee exchanged and discussed the following articles:
     
    Temporary Employees: We reached a tentative agreement to eliminate this article.
     
    Hours of Service: We exchanged proposals on this article specific to rebids (bids).
     
    Meal Periods: We continued discussions on this article.
     
    Training: The Committee continued work on this article in preparation to respond to the company’s proposal.
     
    Shift Swaps: We exchanged several proposals and have narrowed this issue down to what we understand to be a single item.
     
    Grievance Procedure: We continued discussions on this article, which is the basis for enforcing the contract. We are down to one item and will continue to work to achieve a tentative agreement.
     
    General and Miscellaneous: We continued to move items from this article to more appropriate areas of the agreement in an effort to simplify the contract. We will continue this process during upcoming sessions.
     
    At the request of the membership, the following is a list of articles on which we have reach tentative agreements.
    Current TAs:purpose
     
    Preamble
    Safety & Health
