Tulsa union angered by anonymous ad campaign

TULSA (AP) -- Union workers in Tulsa say a "ghost" ad campaign urging mechanics and stores groups to reject a labor agreement from American Airlines is misleading and doesn't reflect the sentiment of many workers here.

The campaign featured a half-page ad in Friday's local paper urging workers to "Vote No Save Our Profession."

The ad was unsigned, and included a website, www.lbo2.com , which appears to contain no identification of who is behind it. An e-mail seeking comment sent to the site's address was not immediately returned.

Mechanics and stores groups began voting Monday on American's proposed labor agreement. Voting ends Aug. 7.

In May, the mechanics group -- the largest Transport Workers Union group at the Tulsa hub -- rejected the company's labor contract offer, with 56 percent voting against it.
