Brothers and Sisters,


The Executive Negotiating Committee met with American Airlines the week of July 17th, in Washington D.C. On the afternoon of July 19th, American Airlines presented their initial proposal covering the remaining articles to your Executive Committee. Upon initial review, the company’s proposal is inadequate and falls far short in providing the contract you deserve. After a year and a half of negotiations with the Company, we are extremely disappointed.

Your negotiating committees have begun the process of evaluating this proposal and remain fully committed to delivering the best contract in the industry on American Airlines.


Negotiations are scheduled to resume on the following weeks: July 24th, August 14th and August 28th.

Mark Baskett, William Fa, Mike Fairbanks, Tim Hughes

Andre Sutton, Rodney Walker, Bill Wilson


Mechanic and Related/Stores Committee:


Jason Best, Mike Bush, Ken Coley, John Coveny

Summer Issue
High-visibility Shirts Versus High Visibility Vests
 After many years of persistence, we are finally able to announce that American Airlines is offering, as an option, a high-visibility/reflective shirt as part of the uniform program. In most cities our members will be permitted to wear the shirt instead of the high-visibility safety vest on top of the uniform shirt. The new shirts are attractive and meet the same ANSI Class 2 requirements that the vests are required to meet. Some airports in some cities still require a vest no matter what is worn underneath it, but work is under way to update these policies, laws and regulations so the ANSI-rated shirt will be permitted without the vest. Every active-status maintenance employee required to wear a uniform now has the ability to order two company-paid shirts. The new shirts are not required, but they are long overdue and a welcome option for our members. For more information, visit the Aramark uniform site on Jetnet. Thanks to all who assisted in finally achieving this relief for those who work outside in the intense heat.
