Members of the Association of Professional Flight Attendants Reject Deal at US Airways Inc
Nov 10 14
By the slimmest of margins, members of the union representing flight attendants at US Airways Inc. voted down a tentative agreement on a new contract on November 9, 2014. The dispute now goes to binding arbitration. Members of the Association of Professional Flight Attendants rejected the deal by 16 votes out of more than 16,000 cast. The ‘no’ votes represented 50.05% of those casting ballots. A negative vote by flight attendants at American outweighed a positive vote at US Airways. At American, 52.2% voted ‘no’, while 53.4% of US Airways flight attendants voted ‘yes’. The proposed five-year contract had come under sharp criticism by many flight attendants who didn't like various parts of the deal worked out by management and union negotiators. But the union had argued that the deal provided $193 million in added value to the flight attendants of the two airlines beyond what their current contracts gave them. Arbitration would cap the maximum value at $111 million. The $111 million represents how much more, on average, the flight-attendant contracts of competing carriers - Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and its Continental Airlines unit - are worth than the existing American and US Airways contracts. A 'memorandum of understanding' signed before the 2013 merger said that a joint agreement would give flight attendants an industry-standard contract. The $111 million represents what the two sides had calculated was needed to make a joint contract comparable to those at the other airlines. The airline, APFA and the union that had represented US Airways flight attendants, the Association of Flight Attendants, had agreed to a 'protocol' that set up what would happen if a contract was rejected. The union said that as provided in the protocol agreement, 'the outstanding issues [those issues reached in the final days of bargaining] shall be submitted for binding arbitration. The first date for arbitration is Dec. 3, 2014. The schedule calls for the last arbitration hearing to be held on Dec. 30, 2014. Post-hearing briefs must be submitted by Jan. 26, 2015. The arbitrators will issue a decision as soon as possible after that. American said the joint collective bargaining agreement that will come out of the arbitration hearings 'will be imposed without ratification - meaning flight attendants won't have any say in the process'. It said it will 'meet with the APFA to prepare for that arbitration process'. APFA said that until the new contract comes out of arbitration, US Airways and American Airlines flight attendants will continue to work under their existing contracts.
