US Airways Rejects Pilots’ Proposed NMB-Facilitated Talks

CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The US Airline Pilots Association (USAPA) received notice yesterday that US Airways has rejected the association’s proposal to seek a National Mediation Board facilitator to assist the parties in reaching an agreement. The association requested an NMB facilitator in February 2009.

“We are convinced that the services of an NMB Facilitator will assist pilot and management negotiators in reaching agreement,” said USAPA President Steve Bradford. “In the letter, Management informed us that they will support a facilitator ‘should there come a time where outside assistance in reaching a single agreement does become appropriate.’ Since negotiations were initiated in November of 2005, the US Airways pilots wonder when the right time might be, and we question Management’s sincerity in desiring to reach any agreement.”

USAPA represents over 5,000 US Airways pilots in seven domiciles across the United States.
