American Airlines talks adjourn until April
EST (0433 GMT) WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Talks among negotiators for American Airlines and two unions representing its pilots seemed to produce progress Saturday, before the pilots union board adjourned to study proposed details of a final settlement.
The board in the Allied Pilots Association will reconvene April 3 at a web site to become determined to go more than final contract language. That offers pilots time for you to study the proposal ahead of an April 28 deadline, when pilots have said they may return towards the picket line unless there is a settlement.
APA spokesman Capt. Wally Pitts stated that before the April meeting, the negotiating committee will place the proposed agreement in to the legal language required to get a board vote. Neither he nor others involved inside the talks would provide facts on the contract proposal. Eventually the rank-and-file also will have to vote on any proposed settlement.
The final sticking point in negotiations was over which pilots -- these in the APA or these inside the Air Line Pilots Association -- will fly new jets operated by American Eagle,Polo Ralph Lauren Outlet,American's commuter arm.
APA wants its pilots, who earn an average of $120,000 a year, to fly those jets, even though AMR Corp., the airline's parent company, would rather see its 1,900 American Eagle pilots represented by ALPA in the cockpit.
Pilots who perform for American Eagle,Ray Bans Uk, a subsidiary, earn far less than APA pilots.

"It's a problem of outsourcing, a job protection concern," Pitts stated. "It's a problem that the pilots are extremely concerned with,Rayban Glasses, mainly because they want American Airlines to develop. They do not want American Airlines to shrink."
APA pilots had reached a tentative agreement with the ALPA more than who must fly the new jets, but American had not endorsed it. The APA pilots want a toehold within the increasing commuter-airline niche.
Union pitted against union"I think there has to be an accommodation amongst ALPA, American Airlines and APA," Pitts mentioned.
Bringing the ALPA in to the negotiations created the talks extra difficult, but Capt. Jim Sovich, APA president, stated APA pilots possess a strategy to offer commuter pilots way more profession choices.
"What this ends up performing as an try to compromise is permit vertical mobility for the current American Eagle pilot and give him access to the American Airlines list at some point within the future when American Airlines would have already been hiring," Sovich said.
American Airlines currently has handled 1 round of canceled flights and frustrated travelers,Beats By Dre UK. You will find hopes that the pilots will attain April 28 with no plans for a different strike.
