United Airlines to cut more than 16,000 workers

United Airlines has said that it is preparing to cut 16,370 jobs on October 1 as the coronavirus pandemic continues to devastate the airline industry.

United’s cuts include 6,920 flight attendants, but the union representing them said 14,000 will not have a paycheck in October unless Congress acts to extend $25 billion in aid.

“This is because many have opted for leaves that will provide healthcare but no money,” Association of Flight Attendants-CWA International President Sara Nelson said.
