APFA August 29, 2013
Meeting with Washington, D.C. Attorney General
A meeting has been scheduled for union representatives to discuss the antitrust case with the Office of the Attorney General for the District of Columbia on Tuesday, September 3.
Help us show the DC AG that his actions may hurt local families. Sign the following letter by emailing your name and base information to firstname.lastname@example.org. As we finalize appointments with the remaining Attorneys General, member participation will continue to be at the forefront of APFA’s plan of action.
Dear Attorney General Irvin Nathan,
On behalf of the hundreds of thousands of Americans whose livelihoods depend on the success of American Airlines and US Airways, we the undersigned respectfully request that you withdraw the antitrust suit intended to block the merger of those two companies.
We know firsthand that, contrary to the complaint you filed in federal court last month, our companies are not capable of competing in the current market on their own. The recent dramatic increase to the size and scale of Delta and United has put our carriers at an insurmountable competitive disadvantage. As you know, the dominance of Delta and United is the result of recent megamergers.
Thousands of DC-area workers, including the undersigned, depend on the stability and competitiveness of American and US Airways to make ends meet. You lawsuit stands between these workers and dependable jobs with decent wages. Please do not continue down this destructive path. Withdraw your suit and the new American Airlines to compete.
