American’s flight attendants prepare for protest – 4.4.07

American's flight attendants prepare for protest

Dallas Business Journal – 5:58 PM CDT Wednesday, April 4, 2007

The union representing American Airlines flight attendants is planning nationwide protests of bonuses to be paid out to senior executives this month.

The American Flight Attendant Union said Wednesday that it's organizing protest picketing events at all of American's flight attendant bases on April 13.

The airline has flight attendant bases in Dallas-Fort Worth; Los Angeles; Boston; Raleigh-Durham, N.C.; Washington, D.C.; St. Louis; San Francisco; New York; Chicago; and Miami.

"These events give all American Airlines flight attendants an opportunity to speak out against senior management's poor judgment to reward 874 executives with colossal bonuses upwards of $200 million, while the rest of us continue to sacrifice every day," said union president Tommie L. Hutto-Blake. " These protests are to remind AMR executives that we all shared in the pain and will not stand by silently while only management's elite rewards themselves with the fruits of our labor."

In 2003, American's unions gave up $1.6 billion in annual pay, benefits and other concessions to keep the Fort Worth-based airline out of bankruptcy.

Union leaders were outraged last year when they learned of the payouts for top executives and management, while employees haven't received payback for their sacrifices.

The bonuses that will be paid out are based on American's (NYSE: AMR) stock price as of April 18.
