Re: Comair/Air Line Pilots Association Tentative Agreement
Washington, D.C. -- The National Mediation Board is pleased to announce that Comair and the Airline Pilots Association (ALPA) today reached a tentative agreement that would, if ratified by the ALPA membership, end an 82-day strike by the pilots.
The most recent round of mediation began on Tuesday, June 12, 2001. After three days of marathon talks with Board Member Maggie Jacobsen and Senior Mediator Patricia Sims, the parties reached an agreement that has been endorsed by the ALPA Master Executive Council (MEC). The agreement will now be sent out to the ALPA membership for an expedited ratification vote.
Questions about specific provisions of the agreement or the ratification process should be directed to the parties.
