Court says American Airlines agents may vote to unionize

Agents and CWA laud the decision, say it’s “extremely good news”

American Airlines Inc. (AA) is striking out in its effort to prevent its employees from voting on whether to unionize.

In August, a judge denied AA’s request to scrap the collective bargaining agreement it has with its pilots’ union. Then, yesterday, in a similar suit, the 5th Circuit denied the airline’s request to block nearly 10,000 of its passenger agents from voting on unionization.
