Published on : Saturday, August 13, 2016

United AirlinesUnited and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) announced jointly today that they have reached an agreement in principle for a joint contract covering the company’s approximately 9,000 technicians and related employees.

The parties will complete final language and put the resulting tentative agreement out to vote by the technicians and related employees.

“This is a great day for the entire United family. Each day we rely on our incredibly dedicated and professional technicians to keep us flying safely. I commend the negotiating teams from the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, United and the National Mediation Board for all of their effort to get us here, as well as the leadership of Captain Bourne,” said Oscar Munoz, president and CEO of United. “Upon ratification, this will be the first time in almost a decade that all United work groups will have labor contracts in place.”

“This is a monumental day for our United members,” said Captain David Bourne, airline division director for the IBT. “I want to congratulate everyone involved for achieving this industry leading agreement in principle which will set a new standard upon ratification. This result would not have been possible without the dedication of Federal Mediator Gerry McGuckin, both negotiating committees and the involvement of CEO Oscar Munoz.”
