Union pilots at Texas-based American Airlines say the state attorney general’s opposition to American’s proposed merger with US Airways doesn’t make sense.
After a bitter battle between American Airlines management and the Allied Pilots Association for years, CEO Tom Horton met with union leaders face to face for the first time.
The union representing pilots for American Airlines sent the strongest message yet to its members Thursday night to immediately stop anything they’re doing to slow down the airline.
The back and forth continues between American Airlines and its pilots, with the pilots union firing the latest shot. Pilots say they are not disrupting American operations with trivial maintenance requests.
American Airlines pilots deny an intentional slowdown, but they admit they area angry over new, less favorable work rules – which include more work, lower pay, and less sick time.
