American Eagle reaches tentative agreement with dispatchers

AMR Corp.'s regional carrier, American Eagle, reached a tentative agreement with its dispatchers on Tuesday.

Dispatchers are the only union group at American Eagle that has not agreed to a new contract during AMR's bankruptcy restructuring process as the workers voted to reject a previous contract offer in October.

American Eagle spokeswoman Andrea Huguely said the carrier is pleased to reach a deal although it still needs to be ratified by the union members, who are represented by the Transport Workers Union.

"If ratified, this will be another important step toward our restructuring which will position us for a successful future," Huguely said. If the contract is approved, the carrier will no longer need to ask the bankruptcy court to reject the dispatchers contract as part of the Section 1113 process.
