Has anyone pondered the thought that if the U.S. goes to war against IRAQ and given Carty''s rhetoric, AMR will be able to disregard American''s labor agreements? All protections and security provisions will be invalid in the event of a national emergency and/or Act Of God. No $12,500 relocation payments due to RIF. The airline might be able to slash the work force and not have to pay a penalty. Severance pay would also not have to be paid in the even of a national emergency, i.e. War. Carty could do whatever he wants in this scenario and blame further cutbacks and facility closings due the war.
