Q: The full TA we are reading is comprehensive, correct? What I mean is this the TA for both of us? There isn’t a portion that applies to VX we at AS are not seeing?
A: Correct. All the documents that comprise the Merger Agreement ( the global document) have been released in full text. There are no other agreements that have not been released other than that management has agreed to pay for some transition-related training (e.g. PBS). The parties will finalize that agreement this week.
p.s. The VX work rules, which are currently neither considered a ‘contract’ nor addressable by the grievance procedure, would be considered ‘contractual’ and therefore enforceable if the TA is ratified. At that point, the work rules would be ‘frozen’ and could not be further amended except by mutual agreement of the parties.
