If American Airlines can't keep its pilots or employees happy, could a potential strike be looming?
Smart for American to go for profit sharing in a good year rather than lock in higher wages that would persist even when returns weren't as great as they are now.
American Airlines Group CEO sounds as though he has turned into a labor activist. OK, not really, but he knows you can't have a successful company unless its corporate culture is healthy and its employees have a real stake in its well-being.
It appears that American is spending more on everyone. Parker needs to bring back the labor skills he used to woo the union to his side in the first place.
You know that United execs, which still struggles with contract disputes that separate former Continental workers from the United rank and file, read headlines like this and just groan.
The resignation reveals a deeper divide between American and one of its leading unions than previously thought.
We're pretty certain there are benefits to other people at American Air that its execs can cut. Perhaps the benefits they receive.
The selective outrage is cynical at best.
American's relationship with its maintenance workers is its biggest labor challenge.
American apparently sees a happier, more loyal workforce as a good thing.
