Pilots Picket The White House
More than 100 United Airlines pilots showed up in front of the White House on Monday to protest their stalled labor talks with the airline. The pilots, wearing their uniforms, carried signs asking for help from President Obama and protesting United's use of Aer Lingus pilots to fly a Washington-to-Madrid route. The airline is "addicted to offshoring," according to the signs. In a vote taken on July 17, nearly 94 percent of the eligible pilots voted, and 99 percent of them agreed to a strike, according to the Air Line Pilots Association. The vote followed two years of negotiations after the merger of United and Continental.
