Usair Pilots Try To Get Talks Airborne

USAIR PILOTS TRY TO GET TALKS AIRBORNE

USAIR, THAT OF THE UNENDing labor negotiations, finally brought its pilots on board. After eight months of contentious bargaining, the Air Line Pilots Assn. reached a tentative labor contract with management on Mar. 25, agreeing to a 20% salary reduction and 300 job cuts in exchange for a seat on USAir's board. The deal still must be cleared by ALPA's executive council and the rank and file. And to survive, the carrier still must win givebacks from machinists, flight attendants, and other organized workers--who likely won't give up as much as 20%. USAir, which lost $684.9 million in 1994, wants to trim a total of $2.5 billion in wages in the next five years.EDITED BY KEITH H. HAMMONDS
