American Airlines agents narrowly reject union bid
DALLAS Customer-service agents at American Airlines narrowly rejected a union's bid to represent them in collective bargaining with the organization.
The airport and reservations-center agents voted against representation by the Communications Workers of America by 3,052 to two,Cheap Ray Ban Sunglasses,902, or 51 % to 49 percent. About 76 percent of eligible workers voted, in line with results released Tuesday.
"We're pleased that our reservations,Ray Ban UK, buyer service and premium solutions personnel voted to stay independent,Ray Ban 2140 Wayfarer," stated American Airlines spokeswoman Missy Cousino.
The union stated it lost votes since American cut about two,Ray Ban Wayfarer 2140,000 agent jobs after filing for bankruptcy protection in November 2011. Spokeswoman Candice Johnson mentioned departing workers had to provide up job-recall rights to have severance payments, which produced them ineligible to vote.

American acknowledged that about 900 agents who took early-out bonuses gave up their recall rights,Ray Ban Sunglasses, and those that left just before the election couldn't vote. The airline countered,Ray Ban Frames, all the same, that it wanted about 800 persons hired after the union filed its election petition to vote, nevertheless it lost a ruling on the issue from the National Mediation Board, which oversees union-representation elections.
