AMR's (AAMRQ.PK) 9,700 passenger service workers vote against joining the Communications Workers of America, meaning that the air carrier won't have an extra union to deal with as it attempts to exit Chapter 11. Still, the staff may have another chance to obtain representation if AMR merges with US Airways (LCC); pilots, meanwhile, would be governed by contracts in place at AMR.

    Yup, good. Unions are supposed to be helpful to employees, but if the employer goes bankrupt, well..............thanks for the help.

    Yup, next they'll all be replaced with contract workers (outsourced), just like the reservation workers for American who happily voted for Company representation instead of Union representation......guess what? Americans Reservation operations were outsourced to the Philippines right after they voted down union representation.
