New AA Pilots: You Deserve AA Vote, Too

In this episode of the Straight & Level podcast, ORD B737 First Officer Matt Skowron discusses signing a card while on probation. Listen to his perspective here


Many newer AA pilots inquire whether they can sign a card and what signing a card means. As a reminder:


  • Probationary pilots are eligible to join the call for AA vote through The Pilots’ Choice for representation. Signing a card will not jeopardize your future at American; it's your right protected by federal law and is confidential. 
  • Signing a card is a petition for AA vote. Signing a card IS NOT a vote for ALPA or a vote to decertify APA. It also does not remove union representation from our pilot group, nor does it change our contract or accompanying agreements. 
  • Triggering AA vote with a strong majority of cards provides an opportunity for you to make a business decision for your career. Hearing directly from both ALPA and our current union will allow us to collectively decide which union provides the best representation, value, and future for our professional airline pilot careers. 


If you meet a probationary pilot who is interested in having an opportunity for AA vote, then you can let them know this survey will provide a card mailed to their house with return postage.
