They came, they met and they will meet again tomorrow

The board of directors of American Airlines' pilots union met on Wednesday afternoon and will continue their meeting after reaffirming their support to restart contract talks with the carrier.

Here is the hotline message sent out by the Allied Pilots Association on Wednesday evening:

"The APA Board of Directors convened at 1 p.m. Central at APA headquarters. After spending the afternoon in executive session, the Board reaffirmed APA’s support for re-engaging in negotiations with AMR management.

"The Board recessed around 5:45 p.m. and will reconvene at 9 a.m. tomorrow. The meeting is slated to continue through mid-day Friday. The Board’s focus will be on providing guidance to our negotiators as we prepare for the resumption of bargaining."

Don't be too sure. I think American Management threatening the pilots just killed any further negotiations.


The pilot version of negotiations appears to be "do what we want or we'll break the law to hurt you."

Keeping it classy, I see!


Lax fa....do you really think that pilots are breaking the law? Really?? I just heard a credible airline analysts say that nothing AA pilots are doing is not legal. You supposedly work in the airline industry with that screen name. If you work for AA you'll remember one of your fa coworkers who used to send numerous write ups (ie more than 10 occasionally) to the cockpit upon arrival. Then she proceeded to turn in several pilots who "broke the law" and did NOT write up some of her minuscule items as you all say. Riddle me that.....


An illegal job action is just that.. illegal. Many of AA's pilots are obviously engaged in purposefully disrupting AA's operations, which is illegal. See the result from US Airways pilots attempting the same thing last year.
