DALLAS (AP) -- 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.
The union board voted 11-5 on Wednesday to reject the company's offer.
A federal bankruptcy judge is scheduled to rule Friday on whether American can break its current contracts with pilots and other union workers. The pilots' union wants a delay in that ruling.
American and parent AMR Corp. filed for bankruptcy protection in November.
