Why should they "negotiate" with CWA when they haven't with any other groups? What makes CWA any different? I guess we may get to see just what kind of marketable skills all the CWA folks have when U employees are out of work and looking for jobs. Then you'll wish that the loud, less reasonable members hadn't been listened to. I wouldn't count on help from the government to keep U from going under, either. A couple less major airlines would probably solve a lot of problems in this industry, and it is just what the competition is counting on. Why do you think that AMR and DAL have just been sitting there, watching this whole thing unfold?
