The board of AMR's (AAMRQ.PK) pilots union has approved the framework of an interim labor deal that would be implemented if the bankrupt airline merges with US Airways (LCC). The approval comes after the board agreed to a conditional labor agreement with the latter company in April, although its pilot representatives said the labor contract "IS NOT a final agreement."

    If the union thought they had problems with AA issues, wait for the merger with the 3 different pilot groups. Will take YEARS to resolve.

    AA will end up treating this merger more like an acquisition of US Aiways, if it happens at all. And that is how is should be approached and consumated. US Airways is the desperate party.

    First, there are only two unions, APA and USAPA. The former AWA pilots, like it or not, are represented by USAPA. However, if this SLI is anything other than the Nic arbitration their will be many parties in the West pilots DFR lawsuit.
    Second, I think both AA and USA are desperate. Neither will survive nor compete if this deal is not consumated. Combined they have a chance.
