TULSA, Oklahoma -

Almost 3,000 American Airlines employees in Tulsa have learned they may lose their jobs as the airline restructures.

In a WARN letter to the Transport Workers Union Local 514 in Tulsa, 2,994 American Airlines employees may be laid off by November 16th. 

WARN, or Worker Adjustment and Retraining Act is a notice in which AMR officially informed the union that employees "may be affected by job reduction" as the company restructures under bankruptcy.

33 of those employees work at Tulsa International Airport, the rest work at the airline's maintenance base.

Company officials say the actual number of layoffs could be less, because of several factors including early out incentives.
