Negotiations stall between American and employee unions

By Nancy Trejos, USA Today

American Airlines is warning its unions that it could ask the bankruptcy court to settle contract negotiations if they are not able to do so on their own, Reuters reported.

The airline, whose parent company AMR filed for Chapter 11 protection on Nov. 29, is trying to negotiate deals to reach cost savings targets.

“Time is running out for union leaders to be a collaborative part of the solution,” AMR said in a negotiations update on Friday, according to Reuters.
