(KSL News) Delta Air Lines pilots have until noon today to approve temporary pay cuts to help the bankrupt carrier.

If the pilots reject the temporary cuts, the company will try to void the current pilot contract in court next month so it can impose a $325-million permanent pay and benefits cut.

The pilot's union tentatively approved the temporary pay cuts, after pilots threatened to strike if their contract was thrown out.

The deal includes a 14-percent wage cut. That's on top of a 32.5 percent pay cut approved last year.
