Leading Change in the Airline Industry


The airline industry is in the midst of historic consolidation and change. Ford & Harrison and our airline clients are working together to lead change during this critical time.

Several air carriers are impacted by recent modifications to the National Mediation Board rules for representation elections and will likely face an increase in union organizing. Airlines with existing representation relationships are experiencing rising pressure from their unions in collective bargaining. In addition‚ health care reform‚ exposure to litigation and changes to the FMLA regulations continue to be of concern to all airlines.

The 2010 Ford & Harrison Airline Labor and Employment Law Symposium will focus on the significant issues and concerns facing airlines today to help them continue to lead change in the industry including:

  • Health Care Reform and its impact on airlines
  • Recent developments in arbitration and litigation under the RLA
  • Roles of women in the airline industry and the challenges they face leading change
  • Negotiating in a crisis atmosphere
  • Emerging trends in employment law

The symposium will also feature multiple expert panel sessions geared to specific topics.  Members of the expert panels will include top labor relations and HR executives from several leading major, regional and cargo airlines, such as Delta Air Lines, US Airways, Republic Airways, UPS, ExpressJet, American Airlines and Atlas Air, among others. 

The symposium will start with a luncheon on Thursday, September 23 and will conclude on Friday afternoon, September 24. We will also have a reception and dinner for all attendees on Thursday evening.
