Pilot Bargaining Update
The NJA and NJASAP bargaining teams met during the week of September 28 for three days of negotiations. As before, bargaining was conducted under the supervision of a mediator appointed by the National Mediation Board. Although some progress was made, the parties did not conclude a tentative agreement and remain far apart from one another in a few critical areas.
At this point, we are waiting for instructions from our mediator regarding the schedule of future bargaining sessions. Our goal, however, is unchanged. We continue to seek an agreement that provides our pilots an industry-leading package of pay, benefits and work rules and allows us the ability to balance that objective – that commitment – alongside the other important needs of the company.
We will keep you apprised of updates as they become available. Thank you for everything you do on behalf of our Owners, their family and guests and in support of one another.
