DALLAS (AP) - Flight attendants facing layoffs and pay cuts at American Airlines have narrowly re-elected their union president.

The Association of Professional Flight Attendants said Friday that incumbent Laura Glading got 4,434 votes or 51 percent to beat challenger Liz Geiss, who received 4,284 votes.

Geiss had charged that Glading wasn’t an effective negotiator for flight attendants, while Glading said the union was fighting to protect as many jobs as it could.

Although Glading won a second four-year term, her vice presidential running mate lost to Geiss ally Marcus Gluth.

American filed for bankruptcy in November and wants to cut 13,000 jobs including 2,300 flight attendants.
