If the AEPA is elected we hope that the current MEC leadership and committee members will be willing to be re-elected. Should any vacancies occur, interim elections will be held.
The current contract would remain in effect. The Agreement is between the Company and the air line pilots in the service of the Company as represented by…. It is not an Agreement between the Company and ALPA.
By changing to AEPA, it will allow the American Eagle pilots to negotiate directly with the APA in an effort to achieve a mutually acceptable single representational arrangement.
Delta pilots got a crappy contract back in 1996.
Why? Because idiot pilots voted FOR it.
Who's fault? Our fault. We could blame ALPA national, but it wouldn't change things one iota.
