United Airlines Pilots to Picket Corporate Partner JPMorgan Chase in New York City as Contract Negotiations Stall

United Airlines pilots, represented by the Air Line Pilots Association, Int’l (ALPA), will conduct an informational picket outside United Airlines’ Corporate Partner JPMorgan Chase Headquarters in New York City during its First-Quarter 2023 Earnings conference call Friday, April 14. United pilots are standing shoulder-to-shoulder to ensure the financial community recognizes United’s reluctance to complete an industry-leading agreement with its pilots.

United ALPA Master Executive Council Chair Capt. Garth Thompson said, “Our pilots have conducted themselves with professionalism and expertise while waiting more than five years for management to get serious at the bargaining table. We want to be a vital part of the company’s ambitious growth plans, but right now we severely lag our peers in many key areas including an outdated scheduling system that pulls us away from our families more than is necessary. This approach by management will see the best and brightest future aviators choosing to go elsewhere.”

The United Master Executive Council (MEC) of the Air Line Pilots Association, International is the governing body that represents over 13,000 United Airlines pilots. The MEC, related committee members, and professional staff work to protect and promote the careers of United pilots, concentrating on safety, pay, working conditions, benefits, and job security. The United MEC is composed of member-elected representatives from New York City, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Denver, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Houston, Cleveland, Guam, and the Training Center in Denver. Local pilot volunteers form the backbone of our committee structure, and full-time ALPA staff round out our team with legal, administrative, and communications support. As the formal collective bargaining agent for United pilots, the MEC is charged with negotiating pilot contracts and promoting airline safety and security. ALPA’s motto, “Schedule with Safety,” guides the work we do every day. The initiatives of United ALPA volunteers have directly resulted in many of the safety features found in today’s modern aircraft and airports. Our contract, the United Pilot Agreement, sets the industry standard for compensation and work rules that ensure the long-term viability of the airline piloting profession.
