Shouldn''t this be over on the United board? FYI - United f/a''s NEVER stayed at plush hotels. The change is that downtown layovers must be 20 hours instead of 12.

(May 7, 2003 3:03 p.m. EDT) - United Airlines'' new labor contracts don''t just cut pay and benefits. They overhaul employee-friendly work rules that helped draw workers to the giant carrier and keep them.

Gone is a rule limiting pilots to 81 hours of domestic flying each month. Gone is an edict that only licensed mechanics can guide jets away from gates. Gone is a guarantee that flight attendants will stay at plush downtown hotels during long layovers.

Chicago-based United, operating under bankruptcy-court protection, said it needed sweeping changes to the work rules to boost productivity and have a chance to return to financial health.............>

While speaking to former colleagues at UAL, I''ve learned from them that the IAM gave back less in salary, but more in work rule changes than the TWU at AMR.

Being that UAL faced the judge, and AMR waits for another day, just wondering what''s ahead.
 
...and if you caught the headlines last week, the FA''s at UAL gave back 9% pay IN BANKRUPTCY COURT. What did ours cough up OUTSIDE OF BANKRUPTCY COURT...15%.

And do you know what our medical costs are going to be come January? I don''t, but a increase is in the works.

Huge increases. The AA pilot's medical "contribution" has immediately DOUBLED. More increases (the amount is not known at this time) will occur in January 2004.

Any more hidden employee compensation reductions?
