American Eagle’s pilots ratify the new contract

American Eagle Airlines‘ (Dallas/Fort Worth) pilots, represented by the Air Line Pilots Association, Int’l (ALPA) have ratified a bankruptcy restructuring agreement that both ALPA and Eagle’s senior executives tentatively agreed to in August. With more than 85 percent of eligible pilots casting ballots, 75 percent of Eagle pilots voted in favor of the agreement. Representatives of the American Eagle Master Executive Council (MEC), the union’s governing body, approved the tentative agreement in September and sent it out for a ratification vote to all Eagle pilots.

The newly-ratified contract will now be submitted to the bankruptcy court for 2nd District of New York for final approval.
