Voting on the American Eagle/TWU Dispatcher proposed contract will begin next week. The polls will open at 12:01 AM CT on Monday, October 15, 2012. Polls will close at 2:00 p.m. CT on Friday, October 26, 2012.

In light of the voting schedule for the Dispatcher work group, we have decided to extend the voting timeline for the AMT & Related work group by one week. The polls will now be open until 2:00 p.m. CT on Friday, October 26.

Dear Brothers and Sisters:
As you know by now, after several months of difficult negotiations, the TWU has reached tentative agreements for the Maintenance & Related, Ground School Instructor, and Dispatcher work groups at American Eagle.
The trial on American Eagle’s 1113 motion to reject these three contracts was scheduled to begin on October 23, 2012. Today, TWU and American Eagle bankruptcy attorneys filed a notice of adjournment in bankruptcy court agreeing to postpone the hearing. Because we reached our last TA just this week, the hearing was only postponed to avoid having the voting process interrupted by trial preparation and the trial.
