Wrong, the NDA was until the final award. The IBT violated the agreement.
Eichen told all of the parties to refrain from any further release, and asked the IBT to remove the information from their website.
Once the cat was out of the bag, the other pilot groups that played by the agreed upon rules began to ask about the proposals.
One of the groups asked if they could release the proposals due to the fact that RAH guys were sharing crew rooms with FAPA guys. The RAH guys had the proposals and the FAPA guys did not. The arbitrator approved the release of the proposals.
He also reiterated the agreement established at the beginning of the process is still in effect. No additional information will be released until the final award is issued. Apparently some of the groups need simple things repeated to them before they understand the meaning.
The proposals themselves are pretty meaningless at this point, as the Arbitrator will do what he is going to do. I am looking forward to the release of the transcripts and even better, the final briefs.
If anyone wants to spend some quality time and skip to the salient points, they should read the briefs. Specifically FAPA's and the IBT's. They speak for themselves.
