Negotiate. Just Negotiate

Mon Sep 20, 2004 9:52 pm

"Leonard Robinson, who put in 30 years as a mechanic at Pan American World Airways, has a message for his counterparts at US Airways, Delta, United and other struggling airlines pressing their workers for concessions: do not wait until it is too late.

"Negotiate. Just negotiate," Mr. Robinson said. Pan Am had more than 26,000 workers in its last full year of operation in 1990. All those jobs were lost when the carrier shut down on Dec. 1, 1991. "They should give up something" if it will save their jobs, Mr. Robinson, 74, from Brooklyn, said."
