It takes a special kind of union to protest wage cuts ordered by a federal bankruptcy court.
Seems like they're bluffing to me, but I'll
assume they are not.
Of course, they won't be able to take full credit for the inevitable closures, pink slips and sell-off of assets, since airlines have never been an
easy business to run, and in the days of modern terrorism, it hasn't gotten any easier. The rise in fuel prices might have already been enough to do
these companies in, as it is.
Oh well, when the airlines fail, at least the flght attendants can claim the bragging rights for putting a final nail in the coffin, if not for
driving them out of business single-handedly. I'm sure that will look impressive on the resumé.
Let's see how well future negotiations proceed between the unions and the federal bankruptcy court.
