    The margin of defeat was 16 votes out of 16k+ cast. US FAs were mostly in favor while AA FAs were mostly opposed. The Miami and NYC International FA bases were strongest opposed. Phoenix was quite happy with it from the US side of things.

    Also, the contract now goes to binding mediation. First session is scheduled for 3 December 2014.

    Binding mediation? Or Binding Arbitration?

    The tyranny of the majority. Assuming they'll get a worse deal out of arbitration than what they passed on. Can hope for the best for them but expect the worst.

    That was practically guaranteed. The EVA (Economic Value Add) required to match the average of the other peer airlines was $111M, the rejected contract was something like $183M. So the arbitration will work against the $111M values - all of this was spelled out in the MOU.
