United Airlines said it continues to focus on achieving a “competitive collective agreement.” Negotiations with Unite Here began in March and lasted until November, when Unite Here requested mediation with the National Mediation Board. • Audited by the Transportation Security Administration – U.S. Department of Homeland Security, with authorization to provide catering services for long-haul flights to the United States. “We will meet soon for the mediation meeting and we will follow the instructions of the board of directors in the next steps,” the airline said. Last year, caterers in Newark, Houston, Denver and Honolulu voted to authorize a strike. The workers joined 18,000 other U.S. contractors, Gate Gourmet and LSG Sky, subcontractors of airlines like American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and United, who also voted to authorize strikes against their employers. Employees of Gate Gourmet and LSG Sky Chefs are represented by Unite Here and other unions. United Airlines caterers are giving up food and juices in a 24-hour fast to speed up contract negotiations.
