In accordance with the provision of the moratorium in the last national agreement, today was the first day that the airlines had the opportunity to open the next round of national negotiations and negotiate a new agreement, and they served us accordingly this morning. The Railway Works Act protects agreements from any amendments, except under the procedures set out in Section 6 of the Act. The airlines agreed on the crew members years ago. Not only that, but to end the ongoing struggle for the crew, the airlines also agreed to moratorium regulations that excluded each section 6 of a crew communication until the last protected employee voluntarily left the service. This event has not yet occurred. These are the facts, but they are not found anywhere in a recount in the wearers` favorite publications. Rather, it is the old song of the anti-unionist. The apologist who says they trust the porters, they just want the best for you. right. Do airlines want to protect you for life? At what cost? And if they decide they don`t like this agreement anymore, they`re going to ignore it, like they tried to ignore our moratorium rules and put you on the road? These apologists say they have internal shovels, but I have never seen a “commentator” at the negotiating table. They`re marginals. To view the smart-TD section 6, click here: static.smart-union.org/worksite/PDFs/2019+National+Rail+Contract/112019+-+Abschnitt+6+Hinweis.pdf Articles also try to scare you into claiming that airlines will unilaterally reduce crews at the end of the last moratorium.
That is not how the law works. The moratoriums did not succeed for the sunset crew. On the contrary, Moratoria prohibits one of the parties from sending a notice in accordance with Section 6 in order to amend or modify the current Crew Agreements Consist until the last protected personnel member is eliminated. Once this is done, a section 6 communication can be notified and the next generation of agreements can be negotiated through the long and long process of the RLA. CLEVELAND, Ohio and WASHINGTON, D.C., (November 1, 2019) – Leaders of 10 railroad unions announced today that their organizations will participate in coordinated negotiations in the round of national negotiations that began on November 1, 2019. The unions formed by the coordinated bargaining coalition are the Union, which we now call TCU/IAM, took root in 1899 when, on a cold winter evening, shortly after Christmas, 33 railway workers gathered in the back room of the Behrens cigar shop in Sedalia, Missouri.
