Disabled American Airlines Pilots to Picket Union Headquarters.

The Dallas News.Net - Saturday 14th April, 2018

Date: 16 April, 2018 at 0800-0900 a.m., Allied Pilots Association, 14600 Trinity Boulevard, Fort Worth, Texas.

A grassroots organization of American Airlines’ 942 pilots on long term disability (LTD).

The 15,000 pilots of American Airlines are represented by the Allied Pilots Association.

Seeks to promote awareness of disability discrimination and to be treated equally and fairly as union members.

To improve inadequate disability benefits which have not been increased since 1992, and to end discriminatory practices. American’s LTD benefits are less than one third of what a Southwest pilot receives and much less than one half, of what lost cost carrier Spirit Airlines receives.
