There were no scheduled negotiations between the TWU and AMR today. But, in a letter to the NMB late this afternoon, AMR rejected TWUs proffer of binding arbitration. In the letter, Senior VP Jeff Brundage made it clear that AMR would continue to seek consensual agreements with all of its labor groups through the 1113 process.
Next week will be extremely busy for TWU Negotiating Committee’s with American and American Eagle. American Eagle will present its 1113 "ask" to TWU and the other labor unions on Wednesday morning, March 21. AA/TWU Negotiations will resume as scheduled on Monday, March 19, 2012.
