WHAT: Pilot picketing protest event.
WHEN: Monday, Oct. 8, 2012.
WHERE: Two locations: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. EDT at Oneworld Alliance headquarters, 2 Park Avenue, New York, NY; and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. EDT, Four Seasons Hotel, 57 East 57th Street.
WHY: APA is seeking an industry-standard contract with American Airlines management commensurate with the value the pilots bring to the airline. APA is also concerned about the outsourcing of flying that should be performed by American Airlines pilots, rather than by marketing alliance partners.
