BlackRock to waive fees for running Federal Reserve bond-buying program
BlackRock, the massive asset manager tapped to manage the Federal Reserve's bond purchase stimulus program, will charge no fee, according to a term sheet released late Friday. BlackRock will also credit back the value of all underlying fees and income that it earns on its own exchange-traded funds within the program. "Net fees for BlackRock, including the value of the credit, shall be made public on a regular basis," the term sheet said. The company also pledged to "treat BlackRock-sponsored ETFs on the same neutral footing as third-party ETFs." The terms came after some criticism was directed at the Fed for giving the contract to a well-connected Wall Street firm.

United vows no furlough, pay cuts for employees -- for now
United Airlines Inc. said Friday it won't furlough its employees or cut their pay after lawmakers approved the $2 trillion bailout to respond to the economic fallout of the novel coronavirus, including the pandemic's impact on air travel, but said a smaller workforce is possible if the demand rebound is slow. "The impact of COVID-19 on demand for air travel has been dramatic and unprecedented -- far worse than even the aftermath of 9/11," United Chief Executive Oscar Munoz said in a memo to United's nearly 100,000 employees. "United will not conduct involuntary furloughs or pay cuts in the U.S. before September 30th," the memo said. Virtually all airlines have announced schedule and capacity cuts, hiring freezes, and cost-cutting measures as the outbreak worsened and flying slowed to a trickle. United said Friday it expects to make further schedule cuts for May and June. Demand is likely "to remain suppressed for months after that, possibly into next year," the company said. "If the recovery is as slow as we fear, it means our airline and our workforce will have to be smaller than it is today." Shares of United have lost nearly 60% in the last 12 months, compared with losses around 8% for the S&P 500 index. President Donald Trump was expected to sign the stimulus package legislation later on Friday.
