LINK. Members of the Allied Pilots Association voted to approve a tentative agreement with American Airlines Friday, the APA says. According to the APA, about 96 percent of the pilots voted with 73.78 percent in favor of the agreement. “We are pleased our pilots supported and ratified this agreement, which is an important step forward in our restructuring," said Denise Lynn, American Airlines senior vice president. "This agreement addresses the priorities identified by the APA during collaborative talks. Today’s ratification gives us the certainty we need for American to successfully restructure, providing opportunity and growth for all of our people and stakeholders. The modernization of our company is well underway, and we remain focused on emerging as a competitive, world-class airline.” With the court's approval, all of the airline's work groups are now be under new collective bargaining agreements as the airline continues working to emerge from bankruptcy.
