TWU American Airlines Equity Distribution

American Airlines Equity Lawsuit Update
2/25/16: We continue to receive questions concerning the American Airlines equity lawsuit. The latest update is below:
The appeal by plaintiffs in the Demetrius lawsuit is still pending:  the U.S. District Court ordered the dismissal of this case, in which plaintiffs challenge TWU’s Equity Distribution Plan; and plaintiffs have appealed the Court’s order to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The case has not yet been scheduled for argument, nor have judges been assigned to the case. 
TWU will communicate with you as soon as there is any further development in the appeal. Please be sure to download the TWU App and sign up for notifications to get the latest updates on this and all things TWU-related.

Distribution of Equity Shares
The total number of shares each eligible employee receives in the equity distribution process is based on a set of factors that is unique to each individual, including his or her particular tax situation. TWU has issued a complete explanation of how shares were distributed, which has been disseminated via post to all affected members. All members eligible for equity distribution were given the right to appeal their number of shares to the TWU Equity Distribution Appeals Committee, and that committee has issued all requested decisions.
If a member has any questions or concerns about his or her equity shares, the first stop in getting the information you need is your local. From the start of the process, TWU AA Locals have taken the lead on equity distribution matters. The AA equity distribution process was developed and voted on by the TWU AA Equity Distribution Committee, composed of officers from Locals 502, 512, 513, 514, 541, 542, 567, 568, and 591. These decisions were also voted on and approved by the TWU AA Presidents Council. You can also e-mail the TWU Equity Distribution Committee.
