Default Mesaba pilots give union the OK to call a strike

Mesaba pilots give union the OK to call a strike
Mon Feb 27, 2006 2:43 PM ET
CHICAGO, Feb 27 (Reuters) - Pilots at Mesaba Aviation, a unit of MAIR Holdings Inc. (MAIR.O: Quote, Profile, Research), have authorized union leaders to call a strike should a bankruptcy court let the airline impose unacceptable contract terms, the workers' union said on Monday.

The Air Line Pilots Association said 98 percent of the pilots who voted approved the strike authorization.

Mesaba, which filed for Chapter 11 in October, has been squeezed by the bankruptcy of its larger partner, Northwest Airlines Corp. (NWACQ.PK: Quote, Profile, Research).

The company said it must reduce its expenses by $66.4 million annually, including $17.1 million in labor costs, to emerge from bankruptcy. Mesaba has asked for court permission to terminate the pilots' labor deals.

Could this be why Pinnacle is hiring anyone they can get their hands on?
