American Airlines mechanics are again voting on a contract. This time local union leaders are urging a yes vote. The last, best offer from the company was voted down, but after weeks of continued negotiating…a revamped contract is being decided upon. Last time around, union leaders didn’t make a recommendation one way or the other. This time it’s different. Sam Cirri is the local union president. He says this latest offer is only slightly better than the one turned down, but this time a yes vote is being recommended.
Voting will continue through 11:59 pm August 7th. Even if the contract is approved, hundreds of jobs will be lost at American’s Tulsa operation.
