American Airlines needs to support moms on maternity leave just as they are for new moms!

This petition had 2,033 supporters

American Airlines announced a new maternity leave making employees eligible for paid time off. They however felt if you were on active maternity when the policy became affective as you already had your baby they shouldn't offer the same support even with a short prorated ammount for the remaining time of your leave! Leaving moms who had a baby in December unsupported by the company.

"New mothers need time recover after the delivery of a baby. For many, that means time away from work. While you’re away, income protection is one way our company can help you through this time. American’s new Post-Pregnancy Maternity Short-term Disability Plan (Maternity Disability Plan) will provide up to 10 weeks of disability pay to a team member following her delivery."

Give employees who had a baby and was already on active maternity leave the support and pay them for their prorated leave!
