PSA Pilots Ratify Agreements Guaranteeing the Placement of Large Regional Jets at PSA
September 27, 2013 - PSA pilots, represented by the Air Line Pilots Association, Int’l (ALPA), today ratified tentative agreements reached with the managements of PSA Airlines and its parent company, US Airways Group Inc. (NYSE:LCC), that guarantee the placement of 30 large regional jets at PSA. With 85.99 percent of eligible pilots casting their ballots, 61 percent voted in favor of the agreements.

“These agreements secure substantially enhanced opportunities for our pilots to progress to our mainline partner and job protections for them here at PSA, while also protecting the core of our compensation and work rules, which fosters a better environment for PSA to attract new-hire pilots,” said Capt. Jesse Coeling, chairman of ALPA’s PSA Master Executive Council (MEC). The agreements are contingent on the merger of US Airways Group and AMR Corporation by December 31, 2015.
