Former TWA pilots sue over pending American Airlines labor deal

Negotiations between American Airlines and its pilots union could result in loss of seniority protection for hundreds of former TWA pilots based in St. Louis, according to a federal lawsuit.

The three pilots' lawsuit contends that, in its negotiations with the Allied Pilots Association, American has "represented that it intends to close its St. Louis base."

Closure of the crew base would eliminate a protective "fence" in TWA's former hub city, which established a minimum number of captain and first officer positions here, the suit alleges. The formula is tied to staffing levels in Chicago and Dallas.

Supplement CC, as it is known, provided for a protective "fence" in St. Louis, which gave former TWA pilots some preference in bidding for flights at the St. Louis base.
