Last evening's hotline contained an error. The following paragraph should read:

"There have been a few questions about a provision contained in the April 12, 2012, original CLA prior to modification on 12/31/12. That unmodified CLA reached with US Airways reads: “In lieu of profit sharing arrangement, the flight attendants shall receive a 2.5 percent pay increase as of the Plan Effective Date.” To be clear, after the LBFO was ratified, the language was modified by the Memorandum of Understanding between APFA and US Airways and it was agreed that because the 3% raise secured in the LBFO was greater than the scheduled raise in the CLA (of 2.5%), the 3% would not be reduced by one-half percent once the CLA took effect. In short, we already received an increase greater than the required 2.5%."

Most importantly, Flight Attendants are eligible for Profit Sharing in March of 2014 provided the company’s profits in the 4th quarter meet the financial threshold for a distribution. AA appears to be well on track for a profit sharing payout for the first time in more than a decade and FAs will receive almost a full year’s payout as a result.

"Merging Ahead!"

ABOUT APFA: The Association of Professional Flight Attendants, founded in 1977, represents the more than 16,000 active flight attendants at American Airlines. In November 2011, American’s parent company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Throughout the bankruptcy trial, APFA President Laura Glading has served on the Unsecured Creditors’ Committee where she continues to advocate for American Flight Attendants. In February 2013, American and US Airways announced their intention to combine the carriers. Achieving a merger inside of bankruptcy is unprecedented in the industry and would not have occurred without the efforts of American’s labor unions, particularly APFA.
