Bankruptcy court judge denies American’s request to void the pilot’s current contract

American Airlines (Dallas/Fort Worth) through the bankrupt AMR Corporation has received a setback in its efforts to impose a lower cost base contract for its pilots, represented by the Allied Pilots Association (APA). According to this report by Reuters, the bankruptcy court judge Sean Lane has denied management’s request to void the current collective bargaining contract with the pilots. Previously the pilots rejected an interim contract that would have lowered wages and benefits.

APA sees this ruling as a victory. AMR can now amend the motion or go back to the negotiating table with the union.
