1113 © Update - Hearing Postponed

Release time: 2:00pm CST

Dear Sisters and Brothers:

After non-stop bargaining sessions with United Airlines that lasted late into the evening on Monday May 16, the IAM and UAL today made a joint request to the Bankruptcy Court to postpone the 1113 © hearing scheduled for today.

The judge approved the request early this morning, and the hearing originally scheduled for today at 1:30 p.m. will now take place on Thursday, May 18 at 1:30 p.m. and closing arguments are now set to begin on Friday, May 19 at 11:00 a.m. The additional time will give both sides the opportunity to focus on negotiations rather than waste valuable time, resources and personnel on the contract abrogation trial.

It is imperative that direct negotiations are given every opportunity to succeed. We are keenly aware of United’s financial situation and we acknowledge the need for additional sacrifice. However, we will continue to insist that any sacrifice is fair, necessary and equitable and that the $460 million in annual savings from IAM members obtained in the previous round of Section 1113 © bargaining is respected.

In the absence of a negotiated settlement, a decision on United’s request to abrogate our contracts could come as soon as Friday. We must remain prepared to strike United Airlines if the judge rules in the airline’s favor.

Fraternally,

S.R. (Randy) Canale
President & Directing General Chairman

Urgent Strike Preparations Underway at UAL

Release time: 12:30pm CST

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

The historic courtroom battle to defend IAM contracts at United Airlines continues in Chicago this week while District 141 negotiators meet separately with UAL executives in hopes of reaching a new agreement that protects our families and provides United with the means to exit bankruptcy.

We want to reach a settlement with United Airlines, but we must be fully prepared for immediate action if the judge rules to terminate our collective bargaining agreements. Such a ruling could come as early as Tuesday, May 17.

If the judge rules against us on United's motion to terminate our collective bargaining agreements, we will immediately strike United Airlines. If United did not want to face the prospect of a work stoppage, they should not have bypassed traditional negotiations and sought refuge in the greatly accelerated process under bankruptcy law.

IAM members at United should immediately begin removing personal items of value from the workplace to ensure such items would be available to them in the event the carrier were shut down and access to the workplace was denied.

District 141 representatives have been dispatched to all major United Airlines locations to provide additional instructions and answer members’ questions regarding preparations for a strike at United Airlines.

Breaking news and additional updates will be provided as they happen on the District 141 website, www.iam141.org.

Sincerely and fraternally,

S.R. (Randy) Canale
President & Directing General Chairman

If this thing goes down on Friday or Monday(if the judge lets it), you also may want a friend or your spouse to drive you to work. If the IAM drives the bus from the terminal to your parking lot as they do in ORD, you may not have a way to easily retrieve your car. You don't want to walk to the unemployment office, do you?
