American Airlines and the International Association of Machinists (IAM) union said they have reached three tentative agreements covering more than 11,000 US Airways mechanics, fleet service agents and maintenance training specialists.
The tentative, three-year agreements cover the workgroups separately and amend pre-merger contracts, and are each subject to membership ratification. The union leadership and negotiating committees unanimously endorsed the tentative agreements, which if ratified, will lead to joint collective bargaining negotiations with their colleagues at the Transport Workers Union (TWU) to cover more than 30,000 employees at the new American Airlines.
