American Airlines Contract Negotiations Expected to Resume
A federal judge again delays a decision on whether to void union contracts at American Airlines. Transport Workers Union organizer Rick Mullings says it’s to give more time for negotiations to see if an agreement can be reached. He says talks have been on hold while the company negotiated with the pilots.
The pilots’ union board has agreed to order a ratification vote on American’s latest offer, and the company will resume negotiations with mechanics and flight attendants next week.
