Airline wants to outsource 5,000 maintenance workers: union

American Airlines could outsource another 5,000 union maintenance and fleet service workers, said one of the unions representing those workers.

After nearly four years of tense contract negotiations, International Association of Machinists spokesman Joe Tiberi said Fort Worth-based American Airlines is refusing to make commitments to how much maintenance and fleet service work will be done by company employees.

“They are looking to significantly reduce the union footprint,” Tiberi said. “In places like Dallas, they replace union labor with lower cost and lower benefit labor, and that impacts the whole community.”

American Airlines spokesman Joshua Freed didn’t deny that unionized maintenance and fleet service positions could decrease but said instead that the airline plans to offer job and location security to current workers.
