Negotiations Update – February
February 8, 2020
On February 7, 2020, the Negotiation Committee had a short meeting with the Company’s committee. Joe Sprague President; Brooke Vatheuer, Senior Vice President, Operations and Planning; and BJ Colby, Managing Director, Finance, joined us at the table.
Management gave a presentation on their finances, plan and their need to remain competitive. They also discussed the importance of SkyWest’s and our ability to compete for Alaska’s regional flying. It was an interesting presentation, but it was nothing they have not shared before and nothing that changes our goal of negotiating the best possible contract.
We want to thank everyone who signed our petition. There were close to 1,000 supporters who sent an email demanding that management DO THE RIGHT THING. We’re still waiting. We remain very close to an agreement. We intend to continue discussions soon, but no date has been set. We will update you again soon. Please continue to wear your red AFA pin in a show of support for a fair contract.
If you have questions, please continue to reach out to your local officers.
