Union: AA to outsource jobs to Hong Kong

Workers at American Airlines’ facility at Fort Worth Alliance airport were angry when they learned that their jobs will be outsourced to Hong Kong.

“This is the result of corporate greed,” said Larry Pike, president of the local Transport Workers Union.

Pike, who has been briefed on the airline’s plans, said work on Boeing 777 jets, which is now done at Alliance, will go to a Hong Kong company called Haeco.

    Why not just allow Cathay Pacific (CX) to take over AA completely. That will be a better deal to the American flying public.
