Arbitrator Renders Decision in MEC 6-20 – International Base Closures
September 26, 2020
We have received a verbal award in MEC 6-20. The Union did not prevail in this case.
The Question at Issue was:
“Did the Company violate the Contract based on their intent to close the Frankfurt (FRA), Tokyo (NRT) and Hong Kong (HKG) International Bases effective October 1, 2020, and not transfer Flight Attendants that are not eligible to work in the United States to a location where they can work, specifically the London (LHR) Base pursuant to Section 17 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.”
Read the Letter from the MEC Officers to the Members at FRA, HKG, and NRT.
