On November 20, the Presidents of the SMART Transportation Division (SMART-TD) in the railways, represented by the National Committee of the Carrier Conference (NCCC), served to amend the agreements envisaged by SMART-TD with respect to rates of pay, rules and working conditions. As a tip to Railway Age, I would warn them against living in the past and trying to play smart-TD against the BLET. We work closely with the Coordinated Bargaining Coalition (CBC) on the national resolution and the various other disputes that the airlines have forced us to. In accordance with the moratorium provision in the last national agreement, today was the first day that airlines were allowed to open the next round of national negotiations and negotiate a new agreement, and they served us accordingly this morning. The articles also try to scare you by claiming that at the end of the moratorium on the last person, airlines will unilaterally reduce crews. That is not how the law works. The course of moratoriums is not the crew of the sunset. On the contrary, moratoriums prevent any party from notifying a section 6 communication to modify or modify current crew agreements until the last protected employee leaves. Once this is done, a notification under Section 6 can be notified and the long and long process of negotiating the LA for the next generation of agreements can be included.
