United Negotiations Update: Talks Continue in Chicago
Contract negotiations continued this week in Chicago, IL. IAM and United negotiators focused
exclusively on IAM members’ top priority, which is job security. We are cautiously optimistic we can reach
agreement on key issues related to protecting our jobs.
Our approach to this issue is multi-faceted and focused on protecting our work from outsourcing,
ensuring that we grow when United grows, and protecting our jobs during economic downturns.
These protections are necessary to achieve agreements on seven contracts covering over 25,000 IAM
members at United.
Negotiations resume the week of June 20th.
