Dear Brothers and Sisters,

We are pleased to announce that our Union has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to extend the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) that covers the air traffic control specialists, traffic management coordinators/specialists, air traffic controllers assigned to the flight service option, and Notice to Airmen specialists (NOTAMS), commonly referred to as the Slate Book. This CBA was scheduled to expire on July 24, 2022. The MOU extends the duration of this CBA another four years until July 24, 2026. This extension is another result of NATCA’s highly successful and productive collaborative relationship with the FAA, as well as a new administration committed to supporting federal employees and collective bargaining rights.

Members can see the original agreement, dated July 24, 2016 here. This CBA currently covers 14,447 bargaining unit employees (BUE) — nearly three quarters of NATCA’s total represented BUEs. The May 3, 2021 MOU extending this agreement can be found here.

NATCA's President-elect Rich Santa and Executive Vice President-elect Andrew LeBovidge stated their support of this MOU extension. Rich said, "We believe extending this CBA is a great accomplishment for the covered members and our Union. This MOU will provide stability for the workforce, ensure continued collaboration to modernize the NAS, and provide the traveling public with the safest air transportation system in the world." Andrew added, "This CBA extension preserves the existing work rules and future pay adjustments for the duration of the extension. It is also the continuation of the strong desire for both parties to remain focused on building a collaborative environment and improving the safety of the NAS by continuing to work together."

We are very pleased to bring you this news. We are proud of this CBA and what it has meant to our represented bargaining units, as well as what it has represented in our collaborative relationship with the Agency. We will continue to use this collaborative relationship to navigate our way through the COVID-19 pandemic and look ahead to a brighter future. We thank each of you for your dedication to the safety of the NAS and to the great solidarity of this Union.

In solidarity,

Paul Rinaldi
President

Trish Gilbert
Executive Vice President

If the slate book is so good then why didn’t we go for a 10yr agreement or longer?

What would have been negotiated? Higher pay raise per year? I'm fairly content with the 1.6% but sure more would have been nice. Also Biden was VP when the slate book was even signed to begin with to end the republican tyranny that was the White Book.

You must have not left your basement yet since March 2020 and haven’t seen how much things cost now, brother.

It’s stupid. Game plan it out. Instead of even a short extension to Biden’s final year, they push into a new administration which could end up a republican one

They could move the steps completely and keep the raises.

or they could increase the raises.

outside of money it would be cool to get some QOL improvements. There is a lot that can be done with fatigue and our schedules. Keeping the early shoves from covid could be nice which would mean people can get more rest before or after mids.

I guess we can still hope for big fed wife increases during biden.

Does the membership have to vote on this or they can just extend our contract?

I think this probably was the game plan under Trump. And it would make sense under Trump. But trump lost.

Well they just extended it. Did you vote?

After all the doomsday preppers assuming the worst under trump (probably rightly lol) I figured more people would be happy to extend this contract.

We can also revisit the contract before it expires as well, we don’t have to wait until the end.

Nice insult. Ive seen the real world and I know that many jobs don't give guaranteed pay raises. 9.6% raise over 6 years is insanely good yet people are going to complain. I asked a simple question, how much do you think we could have negoatiated. So far no one has provided an answer, just attempts to insult.

Oh and those that think Trump would have passed this too, youre straight up delusional.


An improvement to NCEPT would have been nice.

Realistically I think asking for a 3-4% June increase should have been attempted and was attainable. Not all but many other unions do get annual raises like that. Even then Inflation will outpace 3% for the next few years. I understand we get a January raise which is supposed to combat inflation, but that raise never matched the true inflation rate, so between that and the 1.6% raise I don’t think we will break even over the next 6 years.
