Great Lakes To Picket At DIA

Sat Nov 23, 2002 12:33 am

At DIA, we (Great Lakes) operate 172 flights daily.

Great Lakes pilots are going to picket at DIA.

Pilots for Cheyenne, Wyo.-based Great Lakes Aviation will picket at Denver International Airport during the Thanksgiving holiday, protesting "dissatisfaction in current contract negotiations."

The pilots, who said they've been negotiating with the company for the past two years, say they haven't received a pay raise in more than three years. They add that pay for first officers is so low, "they are eligible to receive food stamps."

Good or bad, my airport just loves to stay in the news,

Does this mean they will not be flying next week? (obviously without the pilots the plane isn't going anywhere, just curious on specifics tho as to the schedules  Smile)

That is a good question. I do not have a specific answer yet.

As far as I can tell, there will be pilots flying and picketing.

Good luck,

If everyone was picketing, that would be called a strike. That would also be illegal for them to do - in their current state of negotiations. THis is informational picketing like Eagle and Mesaba recently did. Don't panic... Great Lakes will still continue to fly...for now.
