The new agreement is subject to revision and completion of the language of the contract. The terms of the interim agreement will not be made public, as they must first be reviewed and approved by the Executive Board of FedEx ALPA (MEC). If authorized by FedEx MEC management, the TA will be subject to a ratification vote of more than 4,000 FedEx pilots. If ratified, the treaty could be amended in 2021. On Wednesday, August 19, FedEx pilots, represented by the Airline Pilots Association, Int`l (ALPA), reached a preliminary agreement (TA) with FedEx management on an amended collective agreement. The parties have been actively negotiating since 2011. Discussions began in 2011 as part of a special interim discussion agreement, initially concluded by both parties, to help narrow the vacancy sector to conclude formal negotiations in a timely manner. Formal negotiations began in January 2013, when the openers were exchanged with management in accordance with Section 6. On October 31, 2014, FedEx management submitted mediation to the National Mediation Board (NMB) and negotiations were conducted under the NMB guide. The ratification of American Airlines` employment contracts since the merger with US Airways closed on December 9, 2013, continues. Negotiations on joint cabin crew and pilot agreements are ongoing and procedures are under way to ensure that joint collective agreements will be concluded soon for these groups. Icelandair Group President and CEO Bjorg-lfur Jehannsson: “If this new three-year agreement with the FIA is ratified, this is an important step that will allow us to continue to grow organically.” “We are pleased to have concluded these agreements,” said Doug Parker, President and CEO of American Airlines. “We would like to thank the leaders of the International Association of Machinists and negotiators for their professionalism and hard work on behalf of their members.
We would also like to thank the National Mediation Council, Linda Puchala, a member of the Board of Directors, and Mediator Walter Darr for their support in implementing these agreements. These agreements will allow us to focus on the next steps in the integration of our airlines, and we can begin the process of bringing these groups of workers together with their American counterparts through collective agreements. FedEx Express (Memphis) and its pilots, represented by the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA), have tentatively agreed on a new contract. The provisional agreement is subject to the condition of a final ratification of the ALPA agreement. This statement was made: American Airlines (Dallas/Fort Worth) and the Association of Professional Flight Attendants (APFA) have reached an interim agreement on a new joint collective agreement for more than 24,000 flight attendants. The collective agreement provides for the following benefits: if ratified, the interim agreement would cover the company`s 6,800 flight attendants who are stationed in the three hubal cities of Phoenix, Philadelphia and Charlotte, N.C. and in their focal city of Washington, D.C. Icelandair Group (Icelandair) (Keflavik) and the Icelandic Airline Pilots Association (FIA) have signed an interim collective agreement valid until 30 September 2017. The agreement is now submitted to FIA members who will vote on the agreement. The collective agreement remains in effect until December 1, 2017.
The range of benefits under the collective agreement is unprecedented in the aviation industry. To date, Aeroflot`s costs of obtaining these benefits exceed 3 billion rubles per year. The JSC Aeroflot collective agreement was first signed in 2005. This agreement is the result of major collective bargaining with JSC Aeroflot by the main airline union, First Trade Union, which includes more than half of Aeroflot`s workers.
