American Airlines’ pilots union will hold a run-off election for a new president and vice president.

The Allied Pilots Association said that none of the candidates running for those positions received a majority of the ballots cast which led to the run-off election.

Of the six candidates who ran for president, Captain Daniel Carey, who received 1,668 votes, will face off against Captain Graeham White, who received 790 votes, for the position of president. Current president Keith Wilson chose not to run for re-election.

First officer Robert Sproc and First officer Timothy Hamel, who received 1,323 and 1,031 votes respectively, will vie for the vice president position.

Ballots will be mailed to members next week with votes tallied on June 30.

Captain Pam Torell was elected secretary-treasurer as she received a majority of the votes, avoiding a run-off election. Her three-year term begins on July 1.
