Another U.S. Airline’s Pilots Reject Proposed New Contract

American Airlines pilot’s union leaders have reportedly rejected a proposed contract agreement with the carrier that would have raised pay by 19 per cent over two years, reports BNN Bloomberg.

The Allied Pilots Association board of directors, which says it represents around 15,000 American Airline pilots, voted 15-5 against the plan, the union announced on 02NOV. According to the report, the vote is another sign of growing tensions between pilots and airlines as unions ask for more pay and flexible work schedules in post-pandemic contract negotiation.

Aviators at United Airlines Holdings Inc. “overwhelmingly” rejected a new labor agreement with the carrier on 01NOV, while pilots at Delta Air Lines on 31OCT reportedly near “unanimously” gave union leaders permission to strike with approval under federal law.
