American Eagle dispatchers ratify agreement

Regional carrier American Eagle said its dispatchers ratified a new agreement with the company.

The dispatchers, who are represented by the Transport Workers Union, were the only union group at the AMR subsidiary that did not have a new cost-cutting contract.

"American Eagle is pleased our dispatchers voted to ratify the agreement reached between the company and the TWU. We realize this was a very difficult decision for our people. Achieving labor cost savings was an absolute necessity for the company, and this marks a huge milestone as we now have ratified agreements with all of our union workgroups," said American Eagle spokeswoman Andrea Huguely in a statement on Monday.
