American Airlines agents will get to vote on unionization

By Lance Murray, Dallas Business Journal

Passenger service agents for American Airlines will get the opportunity to vote on union representation after U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia denied a request by the bankrupt carrier to delay the vote.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported that voting by the 9,700 agents is scheduled to begin on Dec. 4 and that the votes will be tallied on Jan. 15 by the National Mediation Board.

The agents are voting on whether they will join the Communications Workers of America.
