United Mechanics Mull Strike

United Mechanics Mull Strike

Quote:
CHICAGO (AP) -- United Airlines mechanics voted Tuesday on a disputed contract offer that would grant them industry-leading pay but require them to give back some of those wages soon to aid the struggling carrier's recovery effort.


Depending on the verdict on two ballot issues -- contract approval and whether to authorize a strike if it fails -- a walkout could begin as soon as Feb. 20 unless there is a last-minute settlement or congressional action to block it.

United Bookings Decline as Strike Looms

United Bookings Decline as Strike Looms

Quote:
ELK GROVE VILLAGE, Ill. (Reuters) - United Airlines on Friday said passengers began looking elsewhere for flights in anticipation of a strike set for next week after 13,000 mechanics and cleaners rejected a contract offer.

With a strike deadline looming in five days at the No. 2 U.S. carrier, talks resumed Friday afternoon. Earlier this week, mechanics rejected an offer from United that included a 37 percent pay increase for the most senior workers, but also sought unspecified future wage concessions and deferred retroactive pay, among other provisions.

Ok someone or something doesn't want me to fly to England in March. First United thinks it'll go under, now there's threat of a strike. Sheesh!

When did you book your tickets?

It's surprising to see that a company facing bankruptcy thinks that it could potentially survive a disabling strike like this.

I booked back in late Nov. and just made final payment for 4 on Feb 4th. I wouldn't think the strike would go until March 22, but I'm worried that it would cause stability problems with UA and throw schedules off.
