NEGOTIATIONS DATES SET
Dear Continental Flight Attendants,
Your CAL MEC and the company have agreed to commence negotiations on April 24th and 25th in Chicago. Your negotiating team is ready to meet the challenges of securing essential items and getting an agreement that provides us a secure path to joint negotiations. This will be the first of many negotiating sessions required to meet our goals. If and when an agreement is reached, the full s-CAL membership will have the opportunity to vote in a standard AFA contract ratification process.
Your solidarity is essential to the process – please keep yourself informed and understand that your CAL MEC is laser focused on protecting what we value based on the 30,000 proposals submitted by the membership. Our current negotiations are narrowly focused on essential items and protections necessary for us to move forward in this merger. These essentials include job security, flexibility, pay, and profit sharing.
Marcus N. Valentino
Continental Master Executive Council
