Dear Brothers and Sisters,
During my years in the U.S. military, I learned valuable lessons that have stayed with me ever since. Never box yourself into a corner, always keep your options open, and be sure to have a long-range battle plan.
That’s exactly the strategy our union has followed as we face, together, one of the toughest battles of our professional lives: The bankruptcy crisis at AMR, the parent company of American Airlines.
Since the beginning, the TWU has pursued multiple approaches to defend our jobs, our wages, our pensions and our health care. Our members and their families deserve nothing less.
Our multi-part strategy includes:
April 17, 2012
The TWU Negotiating Committee’s are meeting at FSU this week to discuss the “full text” language of the company’s most recent proposal in AMR’s attempt to reach a consensual deal. International President James Little told members from the beginning that they would have an opportunity to review full text language before they vote on either a T/A, or the company’s last ask.
AMR is in the process of finalizing its full text version of its last asks for all TWU work groups.
