Pilot Long Term Disability


Informational Meet and Greet 
May 7-8th, 2018 
8-9 A.M.

On May 7-8th, 2018 from 8 a.m. through 9 a.m. a group of Long Term Disabled (LTD) pilots of American Airlines will gather in front of the Allied Pilots Association headquarters in Fort Worth to hold an informational meet and greet with the union's national officers and board of directors. seeks to raise awareness, enforcement of statutory laws to include the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA), and the creation of new legislation to eliminate social security payment offsets. LTD pilots complain they have been severed in violation of the ADA and denied union member rights in violation of LMRDA. LTD pilots also complain the offset of their individual social security payment, amounts to government subsidy of American's corporate disability benefits plan. 

Currently there are 942 LTD pilots out of 15,000 total pilots at American Airlines. APA President, Captain Dan Carey implored the board of directors at the April 16th board meeting to craft a resolution to make all LTD pilots active members in good standing with full right union member rights to include voting and holding office. Carey advised the board that the union had left LTD pilots behind, leaving an open wound.
