American Airlines Needs to Deal With Regional Pilot Pay Issues, Says Lee Moak

Eventually, Moak said, American will come to see the reality and to recognize it in a contract. So far, however, "American is not ready yet (for) an agreement that meets the needs of Envoy and meets the needs of our crew members."

In a letter sent to Envoy pilots on Aug. 22, the three leaders of the Dallas local of the Envoy ALPA chapter said ALPA leaders had directly presented the union's later proposal to American CEO Doug Parker, who rejected it.

"Have no delusions about it, the future of Envoy is uncertain and largely in the hands of AAG management," wrote Kyle Flynn, first officer representative; Neal Spanier, captain representative; and James Magee, treasurer. "Our fleet will certainly shrink, displacement bids are unavoidable, upgrade times will increase and future recruiting opportunities are uncertain.

 "Take solace in the fact that the name Envoy is rapidly becoming synonymous with employee resistance to corporate greed," they wrote.
