United Airlines, IAM reach tentative deals covering 30,000 employees
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.”
