On Tuesday, the company presented a contract proposal to the pilots that included wages equal to Delta rates + 3%, with out-year raises of 3% each year. The proposal does not include profit sharing. If accepted, the pilots' pay at the new American will be industry-leading. The company’s proposal includes a request to eliminate one of the two Scope clauses in the current contract, bringing that provision to industry-standard.

As a reminder, the top of scale wages in our rejected T/A were based on Delta rates + 4% in the first year, with raises of 2%, 2%, 2%, and 3% in the contract’s out years. The pilot proposal is in line with the Flight Attendants' rejected T/A."

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 served on the Unsecured Creditors’ Committee where she advocated for the American Airlines Flight Attendants. In February 2013, American and US Airways announced their intention to combine the carriers and on December 9, 2013, AA exited bankruptcy and the merger was final. Achieving a merger inside bankruptcy is unprecedented in the industry and would not have occurred without the efforts of American’s labor unions, particularly APFA.
