Lawsuit Against Pan Am

Sun Sep 05, 2004 1:05 pm

just off the wire:

CONCORD, N.H. -- The union representing Pan Am airline pilots and flight crews is suing the carrier's parent company, charging it has violated federal labor laws by firing union officers, ignoring the grievance process and trying to shift Pan Am operations to a nonunion company.

Wow, how rare! Unions killing an airline! Wow!  Nuts

If this is true, it's just another case of airline execs being stupid and union execs being arrogant....what else is new.

Hey Friendly,

Read the article before you bash the Union. It might fascinate you to see how bad this management really is. This has nothing to do with the Union causing problems at all. It has to do with management trying to use a non-union company to fly the same aircraft on Pan Am's routes.
