American pilots reject contract offer

American Airlines pilots have rejected a tentative contract from the carrier by a wide margin earlier this week. The move opens up the possibility of the bankruptcy court imposing contracts on the pilots union.
“We are disappointed with the outcome of today’s voting results, as ratification of the pilot tentative agreement would have been an important step forward in our restructuring,” American Airlines spokesman Bruce Hicks said in a statement.

The Allied Pilots Association said 61% of pilots that voted, or 4,600, rejected the tentative contract while 2,935 pilots voted in favour. The agreement, which included pay increases and the offer of a 13.5% equity stake in the New American, represented the carrier’s best and last offer to pilots after years of unsuccessful talks.
