Bargaining between the CWA-IBT Association and American Airlines will kick off on October 4th, 5th, and 6th in Dallas.
In preparation for bargaining, our CWA-IBT Association Bargaining Committees have been meeting throughout the summer. They went through an intense negotiations training in Dallas in June. And over the past several weeks, they've been analyzing members' responses to the bargaining survey. The bargaining proposals that they will bring to the table are based on those survey responses.
The CWA Bargaining Committee includes:
Tom Gunning (BOS), President, CWA Local 1171
Tony Abrams (MIA), Executive Board Representative, CWA Local 3146
Quesaun Naugle (Chicago), President, CWA Local 4201
Tammy Scott (Reservations), President, CWA Local 3642 (Raleigh, NC)
James Womack (Reservations), CWA Local 6001 (Dallas, TX)
The IBT Bargaining Committee includes:
Tara Kelly (LAX)
Lynn Koch (PHX Res)
As front line workers during the Covid-19 pandemic, we risked our own health and made tremendous sacrifices at work--even extending our contract expiration--to help the company weather the crisis. Now is the time to stand together for the improvements we need and deserve!
The first step toward winning a fair contract is to stay informed. Our Bargaining Committees will share regular, accurate updates via email and text message. Make sure we have your personal email address and cell phone number by filling in this form. And share this message with co-workers who may not already be on our email and text list.
We will also post information on our Facebook page and at american-agents.org. We urge you to avoid unauthorized social media sources that may spread inaccurate information and rumors. Get the correct information first-hand from your local union officers, stewards, and the above online sources.
Together, we will fight for and win a fair contract that reflects our hard work and sacrifices over the last two years!

Created in partnership with our Employee Business Resource Groups, these $1000 grants are available to U.S. based team members with at least six months of employment at American.
As the economy slowly recovers from the pandemic and travel restrictions are eased, American Airlines has not yet seen the return of business travel, which is a major driver of its success. Analysts have projected a return to pre-pandemic passenger volumes across the industry by 2023 at the earliest. The CWA-IBT Association has decided to postpone opening the contract for bargaining until the airline is in a more stable position to avoid any unnecessary concessions. After the PSP sunsets at the end of September we should see a better picture of where the airline stands. Our plan now is to start the process in the early part of 2022.
Surveys will be coming soon. Please be sure that your email address is up to date. Email the Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org with your updated information.
We are pleased to hear that Barclay’s AAdvantage Cash is able to extend their program to certain CWA-IBT employees for both Mainline and Regional (Envoy & Piedmont). CWA-IBT employees would include Customer Service Agents (CSA), Customer Service Coordinators (CSC), and Customer Assistant Representatives (CAR) working in the ticket counter and Kiosk locations. There will be a pilot test program and then gradual rollout to all domestic locations. Our pilot program is set to begin on June 1st, 2021 in 6 locations (CLE, MIC, AUS, BHM, LYH & FLG). Post-pilot, we plan to rollout to all domestic stations, beginning with HUB airports. More information to come!
