NMB has scheduled more meetings between the Company and the Association for early December. We had requested to meet with the Company this week however the Company denied that request. We still have work to do to get this JCBA into something that is endorsable. The Negotitation Committee is fully committed to get the best deal we can.
The following paragraphs are a message I received from the SAO Office Manager at SFO.

The TWU is proud to endorse the recently introduced Safe Aircraft Maintenance Standards Act (H.R. 5119).

Association negotiation update for 11.16.19; Limited progress was made this week, and that is encouraging. Our goal is not simply to reach an agreement with the company. Our goal is to reach the right agreement for Association members.
The Executive Committee is waiting for the NMB to set future dates.
