United Master Executive Council Elects Captain Morse Chairman

Denver, Colo.—Captain Wendy Morse, a 24-year veteran of United Airlines and a long-time representative of the pilots of United Airlines, was elected Chairman of the United Master Executive Council of the Air Line Pilots Association this afternoon.

Captain Garry Kravit, another long-time aviator and ALPA volunteer, was elected Vice Chairman. Captain Joseph Genovese was reelected Secretary/Treasurer.

The new slate of officers will begin their two-year term on January 1, 2010.

Captain Morse, a 777 Captain based in Chicago, replaces Captain Steve Wallach, who will complete his term as Chairman on December 31.

“While there is a change in leadership, there is no change in our collective resolve to bring about industry- leading career security, wages and working conditions,” said Captain Morse.

“It has been my privilege to have served the United pilot group faithfully for the past 21 months,” said Captain Wallach, a 30 year veteran of United.
