Since filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2011, American Airlines has been looking for a way to reorganize its finances. One proposed method involves a $1.25 billion reduction in annual labor cost and scraping union contracts.

Obviously, this has not gone over well with union members and the matter has been taken to court. However, there won’t be any decision until next week.

“A judge on Thursday postponed a ruling on whether to throw out contracts covering thousands of unionized workers at bankrupt American Airlines,” according to Reuters.

“Judge Sean Lane of the New York bankruptcy court was set to rule on Friday on the airline’s motion to abrogate terms covering pilots, flight attendants, and certain ground workers at the No. 3 carrier,” the report adds.

Frustrated that unions might lose, one America Airlines flight attendant decided to protest what he thinks is an unfair deal (i.e. that union workers lose their coverage while top executives keep their pay) buy making a video parody of that god-awful Village People song “YMCA.” http://dfw.cbslocal.com/video?autoStart=true&topVideoCatNo;=d...
