American Airlines to lay off 1200 workers




AMERICAN Airlines aims to lay off 1200 non-unionised workers, with its sights on sky caps, cargo staff, airport agents and reservationists, it revealed today.

Parent AMR Corp. is seeking $US1.25 billion ($1.2 billion) in annual concessions from its workers in order to reduce its costs and successfully restructure in bankruptcy-court protection.

Cutbacks include paring annual costs for its 10,000 non-union staff by $US95 million, or 20 per cent.

Next Monday, American will begin its argument in US Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan for why the judge should allow the company to abrogate its current labor agreements with its three big unions so that the carrier can impose terms on those workers, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The unions, representing pilots, flight attendants, mechanics and ground workers, will be able to mount their case for why they believe AMR is asking for too much next month.

The judge has indicated he will render a decision on June 6, and it is expected that he will encourage the parties to try to reach consensual agreements on new terms before then.

The Fort Worth-based carrier today said its staff changes will be implemented within the next 60 to 120 days, the Star-Telegram reported.

It also plans to shut its regional reservations office in Tucson, proposing to move some of the 750 agents there to home-based work, and make cutbacks in its premium traveler clubs.

“The decisions in reshaping these departments — including in some cases, outsourcing, creating different tiers of work, closing some operations and moving some work to home-based positions — were not made lightly,” said airline spokesman Bruce Hicks.

“While very difficult, all of these approaches are designed to preserve tens of thousands of jobs and return American to a sustainable, profitable airline.”
