THE FACTS ABOUT ARBITRATION

•    The combined value of the current LUS and LAA contracts is $1.611 billion per year (on average).

•    The Tentative Agreement has a value of $1.805 billion per year (on average) which is an increase of $193 million or 12% over the current combined contracts. 

•    Arbitrators must comply with the Negotiations Protocol Agreement (NPA), which restricts their authority to awarding a contract that is market-based in the aggregate. 

•    The value of a contract that is market-based in the aggregate, including profit sharing, is $1.722 billion per year, an average annual increase of $111 million. The arbitrators cannot issue an award that exceeds this amount. With that cap, the arbitration will result in a contract that is at least $82 million less than the T/A’s value.
 
•    Under the NPA, the arbitrators can only decide “outstanding disputes.” If the TA is rejected, the outstanding disputes would be comprised of economic benefits: wages, premium pay, 401(k), medical, vacation and sick. This means that the arbitration will result in the loss of $82 million in economic benefits. The work rules would not be in dispute and would remain the same in a contract decided by the arbitrators as they are in the T/A.
