Dear Flight Attendants:
Your negotiating committee met with the company on April 24th and 25th to continue negotiating a contract to transition us towards a joint agreement. As you are aware, the Continental contract provides for an early opener and an amendable date of September 2, 2012. It is important for the S-Continental Flight Attendants to have certain issues addressed prior to entering the joint contract process. These issues include protecting our jobs, enhancing flexibility, ensuring financial security and maintaining profit sharing.
Your committee has made significant progress toward our goals and we have reached agreements in principle with the company in several areas. Both parties have expressed their commitment to the process and have scheduled the next bargaining session June 4th, 5th, and 6th.
We ask you to continue to support your negotiating team’s efforts by staying informed and engaged in the process.
Your CAL MEC Negotiating Committee:
Marcus N. Valentino
