DALLAS -- The pilots' union at American Airlines has rejected the company's latest contract offer. The move could clear the way for a judge to decide whether American can impose its own cost-cutting terms, including layoffs.
A federal bankruptcy judge is scheduled to rule Friday on whether American can break its current contracts with pilots and other union workers.
American and parent AMR Corp. filed for bankruptcy protection in November.
