Pilots of American Airlines and US Airways will receive information about the memorandum of understanding that has been approved by its unions sometime on Tuesday.
The news came in a joint message from the presidents of the Allied Pilots Association, which represents American pilots, and US Airline Pilots Association, which represents US Airways pilots.
"If the merger is eventually approved, this MOU along with the APA-American Airlines 2012 Collective Bargaining Agreement will serve as the foundation for the joint collective bargaining agreement (JCBA) for the combined pilot force. Your negotiating committees will continue working together as we develop this contract, jointly pursuing the best possible outcome for our memberships and striving to expeditiously join other pilot groups that are already enjoying substantially improved contracts," the message said.
Both unions approved the MOU, which includes seniority integration and work rules, a few weeks ago.
