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.

"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.
