United Airlines, Inc. Key Developments

United Airlines Reaches Tentative Labor Deal with Pilots

United Airlines announced that it had reached an agreement in principle with the Air Line Pilots Association for a contract extension covering the airline's 12,000-plus unionized pilots. The agreement comes more than a year ahead of the amendable date of the current contract.

United Airlines and IAM Agree to Open Contract Negotiations Early, Further Expand Job Protection for Employees

United Airlines and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers agreed to commence contract negotiations more than one year ahead of the scheduled amendable date of their agreements. These negotiations, which cover nearly 30,000 United employees, are expected to proceed on an early and expedited basis. As part of this agreement, United has extended through Jan. 15, 2019, its commitment not to contract out work currently performed by the IAM-represented group at all hub and station airport locations. United has joint collective bargaining agreements covering the majority of its represented employees. The company and the IAM have executed seven joint collective agreements in the past few years for the airline's ramp service and passenger service agents, storekeepers, load planners, maintenance and fleet technical instructors, and other groups. United is also engaged in mediated negotiations with the Association of Flight Attendants and has entered into discussions with its pilots, represented by the Air Line Pilots Association, to consider an extension of their current collective agreement. Additionally, United recently announced an agreement with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters to put a proposed joint collective bargaining agreement out for ratification by the company's technicians and related employees.

Munoz has been on leave since October 16 after suffering a heart attack the prior day. On October 19, United Continental appointed general counsel Brett Hart as acting chief executive.
