 Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement - 12.13.14

 Implementation Letter - 12.13.14

At the request of APFA National President Laura Glading and the Joint Negotiating Committee, American Airlines management met with APFA leadership in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area today to discuss the possibility of improving the arbitrated contract. Present at the meeting were members of the APFA Board of Directors and Executive Committee, American CEO Doug Parker, President Scott Kirby, and Executive VP Stephen Johnson. APFA raised the issue of bringing the value of the arbitrated contract up to that of the Tentative Agreement that was rejected in November – a difference of approximately $81 million annually. After extensive discussion, APFA is pleased to announce that our request has been granted and, effective January 1, 2015, the improved wage table from the Tentative Agreement will go into effect, which includes a top hourly rate increase from $50.17 to $53.52.

In addition, APFA and AA confirmed the parties' previous understanding of language that already exists in the JCBA with regard to a possible wage adjustment once the UAL/CAL Flight Attendants achieve a contract. The parties confirmed that a joint United/Continental contract can only have a positive impact on our Agreement. The APFA Executive Committee unanimously adopted the following resolution:

Q: When is the $3,000 transition payment being issued to LUS Flight Attendants?

A: LUS flight attendants will receive the transition payment within 45 days of the effective date of the JCBA. To receive the payment, a Flight Attendant must be in active status (i.e. in regular active pay status with American Airlines or on a FMLA, Military, Maternity, Adoption, or Paternity leave and not on any other unpaid leave of absence) on 1/15/15. A Flight Attendant taking a bid leave (VLOA) for the month of January is considered to be in active status and will be eligible to receive the transition payment.
