Sisters and Brothers,

The Association Fleet Committee met with American Airlines during the week of May 9th in Washington, D.C.

The company still has not provided us with any new proposals on the articles from our openers in December 2015. They have also not responded with counter- proposals to any of the outstanding articles. The only thing American Airlines management has done is continue to propose unacceptably weak contract language in articles throughout the agreement, and we will continue to reject such proposals.

This week, the Association Fleet Committee offered the following counter- proposals:

• We have made our counter proposal on Shift Trades to provide enhancements for the membership.

• We countered the company’s proposal on Hours of Work, and after several table discussions, the company is reviewing our language.

• We countered the company’s proposal on Work Schedules, and after several table discussions, the company is reviewing our proposal.

• We informed the company that we are not interested in Temporary Employees and our position has not changed to eliminate this provision. The company is currently unwilling to move from their position, with arguments that are baseless and contentious.

• The company has refused to change their position on the Sick Leave article. Your committee refuses to allow the company to treat us like second-class citizens regarding this important aspect of our contract.  Read More

Sen. Brant McCreadie addresses Yvonne Terlaje, Recording Secretary LL2339G and Anna Alegre-Tupaz, Vice President LL2339G, during a public hearing on Bill 298-33 that would add to the Guam Family and Medical Leave Act and add a stature relative to child school-related leave at the public hearing room of the Guam Legislature in Hagatna, Tuesday, May 3.

09 May 2016, LL2339G Guam:

Perspectives from Yvonne Terlaje, Recording Secretary LL2339 and Anna Alegre-Tupaz, Vice President LL2339G, proved enough testimony to deem “long overdue” a measure that proposes to adopt and expand provisions of the Family Leave Act for Guam proposed in Bill 298-33.

The proposal by Sen. Brant McCreadie was met with support during the public hearing on Bill 298-33 on Tuesday afternoon. According to McCreadie, one of the individuals who provided testimony during the hearing helped bring the issue to his attention. Anna Alegre-Tupaz approached McCreadie after she experienced several instances of varied interpretations of how the FMLA provisions applied to island workers.  Read More
