What Does the Negotiations Committee Do?
This committee is charged with negotiating, on behalf of Compass flight attendants, new contracts with the company. The Master Executive Council shall select the Negotiating Committee from among the active members in good standing. The Negotiating Committee shall function until an agreement is concluded under the provisions of the Railway Labor Act, and shall remain an active committee until the next Negotiating Committee is selected. A new committee shall be selected nine (9) months prior to the date a “Section 6 Notice” is served, providing however, that the Master Executive Council by majority vote may replace any member of the Negotiating Committee at any time. If a member of the Negotiating Committee resigns, the Master Executive Council may select a replacement. The Negotiating Committee selected should include a member, or members, who have had previous experience, insofar as is practicable.
Why Would I Contact the Negotiations Committee?
If you have ideas or concerns that you would like addressed during contract negotiations, the Negotiations Committee is charged with reviewing such proposals. If you have advance proposals before the Negotiations Committee is created, please bring those to the attention of your LEC and MEC officers.
