Monday, 13. July 2020 21:50

American Airlines Inc. will notify its pilots of any decisions regarding possible furloughs during this week, CNBC reported on Monday, citing an audio recording of one of the company's top executives it obtained.

Under the financial aid deal the United States airlines have reached with the country's government, employee dismissals and pay cuts are banned until September 30, while the US labor law states that workers have to be provided with a 60 calendar-day advance notification of layoffs or temporary furloughs.

Currently, there are 15,000 pilots on the American's payroll, but the exact number of emloyees who will be affected with the measure is yet unknown, the report noted.
