US Airways MEC update for Thursday, November 21:
The MEC convened its special meeting today in Herndon and received a report from the Negotiating Committee. The Committee reported that management terminated additional small jet relief negotiations with ALPA this afternoon after informing the Committee that managementâ€™s latest counterproposal was their final offer and asked that ALPA not present a counterproposal to it.
The Committee reported that ALPAâ€™s small jet proposal to the Company gave management everything that they had requested, except the ability to put 70-seat small jets at US Airwaysâ€™ current wholly-owned carriers. During negotiations, management refused to address most of the MECâ€™s small jet relief issues.
