The Settlement between American Airlines, US Airways and the U.S. Department of Justice

We’re pleased that an agreement between American Airlines, US Airways and the Department of Justice has been reached. The DoJ’s actions in recent weeks were the equivalent of hitting a pause button on workers’ wages, benefits and job security.

Today’s announcement will allow TWU members at American Airlines to gain long-delayed raises. Negotiations for our members at US Airways have been in limbo as a result of the DoJ’s actions, those talks can now move forward. We also can begin to move forward on working out final details related to combining the two airlines’ work groups.

As a result of today’s announcement, the merger will now move forward, but many critical details related to airline workers remain to be addressed. We’re not done yet.
