MEDIATION, SURVEYS AND MEETINGS
The Road Ahead
As we previously reported, your Union filed for contract mediation with the National Mediation Board (NMB). The NMB assigned a mediator to our case and we expect the first session to begin in June. This is a major opportunity for all of us. With mediation on the horizon, we need information and input from every Flexjet and Flight Options pilot in order to maximize the benefits of this new and important stage of the negotiating process.
Here's what happens next –
We are uniquely positioned to reach our goals during the most favorable collective bargaining environment in the history of our profession. We can’t squander the opportunity in favor of “individual agreements” or giving “no representation” a year to succeed. A new CBA is where we make real and sustainable improvements.
First, we need to win the election. Second, we need to unify as a pilot group to maximize our bargaining leverage. We can do this!
