American Airlines’ Agents Unionize

Well then. I see that American Airlines will be going bankrupt again sooner than expected.

Reservation agents at Texas-based American Airlines have voted overwhelmingly for union representation, in a move that labor organizers hailed Tuesday as a historic win in the South.

The agents chose to join with US Airways agents to form a bargaining unit of 14,500 employees at the new American Airlines. The two airlines merged this year, taking American’s name.

    Good point about unions. After all, the NFL have been on the verge of bankruptcy for decades now. And no movie coming out of Hollywood has been able to make a buck every since IATSE organized those workers.

    Germany has many unions that are very advanced. The unionized businesses are very profitable!
