Hotline Update – December 12, 2011

Today’s hotline will hopefully clear up a rumor that seems to have gone system wide.

Rumor: American is taking away our sick time! The (fill in any work group) have already had their sick time wiped out by the company!

Truth: Sick time has not been wiped out from any work group. As for organized work groups, any changes to the CBA will be made through the Section 1113 process, which requires negotiation and, absent a ratified agreement by the membership, approval by the bankruptcy court judge.
