The local Transport Workers Union in Tulsa, Okla., is expected to announce a new plan to keep American Airlines jobs there as the air carrier continues through bankruptcy proceedings.
Monday's expected announcement comes nearly two months after Fort Worth-based American Airlines filed for bankruptcy protection.
The airline employs about 7,000 workers in Tulsa.
Local union leaders have said the salaries and benefits of the Tulsa workers could be in jeopardy during the bankruptcy process, and city leaders are considering what incentives could keep the maintenance base open.

Union members say pilots and flight attendants have already given back $1 billion a year in salaries and benefits to help the company deal with its debt.
