The Transport Workers Union is planning to prepare a counterproposal for American Airlines by next week. AMR Corp., the parent company of American, filed for bankruptcy in November. According to an opinion article, "American officials are confident and determined to see that the company and its employees weather this storm. As bad as this loss is, we hope that American remains a vital part of Tulsa and the state." American has proposed cutting 13,000 workers and Fitch estimates that several thousand layoffs could occur in north Texas, especially in Fort Worth, where the company wants to close a maintenance facility at Alliance Airport.
