District 141 Meets with United, Secures Wage Increase for Members Working Under Modified Contracts

 

December 17, 2015

IAM District 141 and United Airlines met this week and
began the process of determining which provisions of
the current IAM-United collective bargaining agreements
(CBAs) will be the subjects of collective bargaining
in the upcoming expedited, limited issue contract
negotiations. The parties also agreed upon a wage
increase for IAM-represented employees working under
modified contracts.
As you may know, IAM District 141 and United agreed in
November to enter expedited, limited issue negotiations
to modify the current IAM-United CBAs, which become
amendable on January 1, 2017, to take advantage of
favorable industry conditions. While these negotiations
are not traditional Railway Labor Act (RLA), Section 6
collective bar-gaining, they may nonetheless present the
unique opportunity to provide IAM members at United
meaningful wage gains and enhance already improved
job-security in an expedited timeframe (IAM District 141
demanded and achieved, as a condition to enter expedited,
limited issue negotiations, that United be prohibited
from outsourcing work currently performed by IAM
members at United Airlines until 1/1/2019 or one year
following any subsequent agreement). Our intent is to
make further scope and work protection improvements
in any agreement that may be reached.
Your negotiating committee’s positions regarding which
issues require improvement this week were guided by
the survey results and local representative and member
input. Participation in the contract survey was widespread
among the different classifications and extremely
encouraging. Participants by far rated the top issues as
wage increases, strengthened job security (scope) and
enhanced pension benefits.

Your negotiating committee requested United show a
sign of good faith by including IAM-represented workers
at locations working under modified CBAs to receive the
same percentage wage increase as all other IAM-represented,
similarly classified workers receive on January 1,
2016. United agreed. This is a positive sign and a good
start.
It is because of your hard work and past sacrifices that
United Airlines is posting record profits and you deserve
a bigger share of those profits and the security of
knowing that your job will not be contracted out to the
lowest bidder. You shouldn’t have to wait years for these
improvements, as is often the case under RLA, Section
6 bargaining. As your union representatives, we have an
obligation to ensure that you receive a fair deal for your
labor. The upcoming expedited, limited issue negotiations
provide us with that opportunity and to achieve
further deserved equity.
IAM District 141 and United have agreed to meet the
weeks of January 4th, January 18th, February 1st and
February 15th. When both parties finalize the list issues
that will be subject to bargaining in these expedited,
limited issue negotiations, they will immediately be
communicated to the membership.
Sincerely and fraternally,
Mike Klemm, PDGC
