• Every week, we are showing our strength as a unified movement of AA mechanics and related by wearing our Teamster pride system-wide. Click here to see photos.

  • AMR said Monday its unit revenues for American Airlines and AMR Eagle Holdings rose 4 percent in July from a year earlier, to 14.61 cents per available seat mile. It said the 14.61 cents was the highest unit revenues it had ever recorded for a month.

  • This morning, the U.S. Department of Justice filed a civil antitrust suit against the merger between American Airlines and US Airways. Six states attorneys general and the District of Columbia joined the suit, saying the merger will lessen competition, lead to increased fares and reduced services for passengers.

  • Allen Cosides and Glenn Marcisak are mechanics at United Airlines. Allen is an auto mechanic and Glenn works in facility maintenance – they are both proud Teamsters. When they heard that rumors were circulating at AA that the Teamsters would not fight for Title II mechanics, they decided to tell their story.

  • Last Friday, US Trustee Tracy Hope Davis made her final objection urging Bankruptcy Judge Sean Lane to oppose Tom Horton’s $20 million severance package. As the mechanics and related workforce of the airline that Horton bankrupted, we share Davis’s outrage and made that clear with our petition that we launched in June. Now we need to turn up the pressure against CEO looting at AA before the judge makes a final decision.
