Two American Airlines passenger service employees

OUR UNION HISTORY OF WORKING TOGETHER

When US Airways merged with America West in 2005, passenger service agents at the former America West were already represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, and US Airways agents had been members of the Communications Workers of America since 1997. After the 2005 merger, CWA and IBT formed the Airline Customer Service Employee Association, CWA-IBT, to represent workers at the new US Airways.

In 2013, the merger of US Airways and American Airlines led to a National Mediation Board election to determine representation for agents at the new American Airlines. In September 2014, by an overwhelming vote, the new American Airlines airport and reservations agents chose representation by the CWA/IBT Passenger Service Employee Association. Members of the two unions have elected a joint Bargaining Committee that negotiates the terms of our contract with management.

PREVIOUS US AIRWAYS CONTRACT and INFORMATION

On July 30, 2013, the Airline Customer Service Employee Association IBT-CWA and US Airways, Inc., reached a tentative Interim Letter of Agreement (“LOA”). The LOA contained three major components:  1) a wage increase and ratification bonus, 2) a “no furlough” guarantee, and 3) the cross utilization of US Airways and American Airlines employees and vendors after the closing date of the merger.

All other provisions of the collective bargaining agreement remained intact and enforceable.
