--()--Allied Pilots Association:
WHO: The Allied Pilots Association (APA) representing the 10,000 pilots who fly for American Airlines.
WHAT: Public demonstration signifying American Airlines pilots' determination to secure a contract commensurate with their status as professional aviators for a major U.S. carrier. Members of the APA Board of Directors will participate in the rally, along with rank-and-file pilots from American Airlines’ Los Angeles base and other locations.
WHEN: Friday, Sept. 21, 2012 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time.
WHERE: Between Terminals 4 and the Tom Bradley International Terminal, Upper Level, on the outside connecting sidewalk, Los Angeles International Airport, Los Angeles, CA.
WHY: American Airlines management recently received bankruptcy court approval to reject the APA-American Airlines Collective Bargaining Agreement. Management is now unilaterally implementing new terms of employment that adversely affect pilots’ working conditions, compensation and retirement security. APA believes management is using Chapter 11 bankruptcy to extract far more value from the pilots than what’s needed to successfully restructure American Airlines.
