On the 9/11 anniversary, a small detail that is never mentioned.

American Airlines refused to pay the families of the pilots killed on 9/11 in accordance with Supplement Z of their contract.
Tell me again why anyone ever bothers to have a contract when you'll just get cheated anyway?

Please remember this as things heat up and a strike ensues.



SUPPLEMENT Z
SUPPLEMENTAL AGREEMENT
between
AMERICAN AIRLINES, INC.
and
THE AIR LINE PILOTS
in the service of
AMERICAN AIRLINES, INC.
as represented by
ALLIED PILOTS ASSOCIATION
BENEFITS IN THE EVENT OF
TERRORISM, SABOTAGE OR HOSTAGE
A. DEATH, PERMANENT TOTAL DISABILITY, AND DISMEMBERMENT BENEFITS
In the event of
(i) the death of a pilot, or
(ii) the permanent and total disability of a pilot, or
(iii) the loss by a pilot of sight of both eyes, or the loss of both hands,
or both feet, or one hand and one foot, or one hand and sight of
one eye, or one foot and sight of one eye,
resulting from injury or illness incurred during acts of terrorism or sabotage:
the Company shall pay or cause to be paid, subject to the conditions set forth in
C. and D. below, five hundred thousand dollars ($500,000) to such pilot if he is
alive, otherwise to his designated beneficiary under the Company's Group
Insurance Plan. "Permanent total disability" shall mean the complete inability of
the pilot to exercise his/her airmen certificate for at least one (1) year, and at the
end of said period, the expectation to be that the disability shall continue for the
remainder of the pilot's life. "Loss", with respect to hands and feet, shall mean
actual severance through or above the wrist or ankle joints; with respect to eyes,
shall mean entire and irrecoverable loss of sight. In the event the pilot becomes

maximum payment under this Section shall be five hundred thousand dollars
($500,000), and such benefits shall be in addition to the benefits provided in other
Company plans.

3. Greed

The contract clearly stated that it would be paid out in addition to and regardless of other payouts.

Don Carty (the former CEO) of AMR was a selfish greedy bastard as were/are all the subsequent CEO's.

AMR's response to anything is "if you don't like it, grieve it".

That, my friends is why there are unions.

2. I think the payout was covered by the 9/11 victim's fund.
