America West FAs could strike as early as 12:01 a.m. EST Saturday, a minute after the end of a 30-day cooling-off period set by the National Mediation Board.
The 2,300 FA have been working without a contract since voting to unionize in 1994, three years after America West filed for backrupcty protection and employess took pay cuts.
About two-thirds of America West's FA earn the top-scale of $23,800.
Top-scale FAs in SW earn $41,200 (just a thing to say about their pay).
Hopfully AWA's FA wont strike due to more than 100,000 paxs might be stranded this weekend.
