United Pilots: UAL Release on Sick Leave Lawsuit ‘Inaccurate, Alarmingly Misleading’
Chicago, July 30, 2008—The United Chapter of the Air Line Pilots Association can confirm that it is in receipt of a lawsuit filed today in federal court by United Airlines against the union regarding sick leave. ALPA attorneys are currently reviewing the complaint.
“ALPA cannot comment on the pending litigation at this time until our attorneys have had the opportunity to review it,” said United MEC Chairman Captain Steve Wallach. “A UAL press release issued today, however, concerning the lawsuit contained inaccurate and alarmingly misleading information. The United Chapter of ALPA believes this is not a constructive approach to labor relations.”
