American Airlines pilots’ union says labor deal may be close

Union and AMR Corp. have been trying to reach agreement for years

The Allied Pilots Association (APA)—the union that represents pilots for AMR Corp.’s American Airlines (AA)—announced yesterday that the two parties may be close to an agreement. The union and AA pilots have been embroiled in labor contract negotiations for years.

"There is potential for an agreement with AMR in the days ahead, but it all comes down to a number of moves management will need to make on key deal points to bring us into the realm of industry standard," the union said in a statement.
