OK, negotiating with someone who is not in a union... what??? Are there any AA employees who have individual employment contracts with AA?

certain levels of management DO have individual contracts--those are the people who negotiated their own protected bonuses several years ago when the regular employees were taking pay cuts--

and there are certain sections of employees who are technically "white collar" employees who have their pay/benefits negotiated without being in a protected union--people I know who worked for AA in the dispatching sector, or maybe meteorologists, people working in IT

To quote a previous poster:

"Yes, AA's Pilots Union is absolutely off their rocker. They dont care about working with anybody and they love to see the company fail. They are already overpaid. It the FA's, ground staff, and passengers who suffer because of the absurdity of the pilots union.

Im not a huge Arpey fan, I think hes too conservative, but the AA employees (non pilot) respect him for one reason: hes tried like hell to keep the company out of BK. If the pilots dont stop their absurdity, AA will end up in BK at some point and it will only hurt them more."

I agree 100% with this assessment of the pilots union. They are absolutely 100% full of it! They want to see their airline fail. They have done things time and time again that point to this. Since I wish for American Airlines to continue to remain in business, I have to wish for these people (leadership of the AA pilots unions and those pilots who voted for them) to be replaced.
