American, unions in contract talks
Flight attendants and mechanics at American Airlines want to resume contract talks as a deadline nears for a federal judge to rule on whether the airline can impose its own terms on workers.
Separately, the pilots’ union board was meeting Tuesday to reconsider whether to let members vote on American’s final contract offer.
Tuesday’s developments raised the prospect that American could negotiate voluntary cost-cutting deals with all three of its labor unions, which seemed unlikely just a week ago.
