U.S. Airways Catches Flak for Handling of Restructuring


U.S. Airways provides a lesson in how not to conduct employee relations as it continues to detail its restructuring. The airline will eliminate 200 of its daily flights and will cut 500 pilots by early 2003. The announcement of further layoffs (1,000 pilots have already lost jobs since Sept. 11) was made through a company notice on availability of flight positions. Spokespeople for the Air Line Pilots' Association say they are deeply unhappy about the way the announcement is being made and the number of cuts the airline is making over the course of its Chapter 11 restructuring.
