Judge Delays Ruling on American Airlines Contracts
DALLAS (AP) — American Airlines says a federal bankruptcy judge has delayed a ruling scheduled for Friday on whether it can break its contracts with unions and impose cost-cutting steps including layoffs.
The judge set a new deadline of June 29.
The delay gives the company and unions more time to negotiate voluntary cost-cutting agreements that the unions have so far resisted.
