Next week, at the MEC Regular Meeting in San Diego, Calif., the MEC will vote to elect the next Negotiating Committee, who will negotiate for the Delta pilot group through C2019 Section 6 negotiations.

While the 19 voting members of the MEC ultimately decide the outcome of the election, your input and involvement are important to make sure your views are represented. On Monday, November 6 at the San Diego Air and Space Museum PUB event, you can talk with the announced candidates, learn about their backgrounds and provide feedback to your elected council representatives.

Election Process

On Tuesday, nominees for the Negotiating Committee will be given an opportunity to share their qualifications, which will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the MEC. On Wednesday, the MEC will elect the Negotiating Committee chairman and vote on the size of the committee. The committee can have three or four members. The MEC will consider factors including committee makeup, experience and workload to determine committee size. The following day the MEC will vote on the pilots comprising the committee.
