A tentative agreement with United Airlines technicians and before the deal was even amendable
From United CEO Scott Kirby
I’m so happy to announce that we have reached a tentative agreement with our technicians – and before the deal was even amendable. That’s the way to do it!!
Our technicians did an amazing job through the pandemic even with the unique extra hurdle of our Pratt & Whitney powered 777s to deal with right in the midst of the recovery – probably already their highest workload in history.
We’re buying a lot of new airplanes for them to maintain and they are the best in the industry. They’re also working with the company to lead the way with Calibrate, an innovative first of its kind apprenticeship program, to impart their decades of experience to the next generation of maintenance technicians.
For our United Airlines customers, these are the men and women that keep you safe and do everything possible to make sure your flights get out on time.
