United Airlines has reached tentative agreements with the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) for contracts covering all 30,000 IAM-represented workers at the airline.

After four months of negotiations, United and union representatives came to terms on seven tentative agreements for new contracts that cover contact-center agents, airport-operations employees, maintenance instructors, storekeepers, central-load planners, fleet technical instructors and security officers.

The tentative agreements would run through 2021 and now must be approved by the IAM-represented workers themselves.

"As I visit our airport locations, I'm always impressed with the passion and professionalism of our IAM-represented team," Oscar Munoz, the airline's president and CEO, said. "They take great care of our customers and each other every day, and we are excited to reach this agreement.”
