On Thursday evening, the Association of Professional Flight Attendants announced that it has agreed to a memorandum of understanding that discusses work and integration issues if American Airlines merges with US Airways.
The APFA, which represents 18,000 American flight attendants, said it would not be able to divulge the details of the memorandum because the union has previously agreed to a non-disclosure agreement.
Here is the brief statement issued by the APFA:
APFA has agreed to a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), clarifying several points contained within the Bridge Agreement the union signed with US Airways last Spring. This MOU further illuminates the financial benefits of a merger to AMR’s creditors. APFA is currently operating under a judicially-enforceable non-disclosure agreement (NDA) with regards to merger discussions, which means that as long as this restriction is in place, we are not able to divulge specific details of the MOU.
The Allied Pilots Association as also approved an MOU related to the merger which is currently being considered by the two carriers and the US Airways' pilots union.
