… The union busting campaign by Northwest Airlines against the AMFA mechanics and the recent bankruptcy of both NWA and Delta is only the latest chapter of an ongoing war against airline workers. Four major unionized legacy airlines are now in bankruptcy. Northwest, United, Delta and US Airlines workers all have faced major wage cuts, attacks on working conditions and the destruction of their pensions. Where will it end?
… This forum will focus on the state of the airline industry, the growing safety dangers and the workers who are battling for survival. It will also look at the potential role of organized labor in turning the tide against this destructive deunionization drive going on in the industry.
