Try to see it my
Only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong
While you see it your way
There's a chance that we may fall apart before too long
We can work it out
We can work it out
--John Lennon, Paul McCartney: "We Can Work It Out"
The Air Line Pilots Association International (ALPA), wants its
negotiating committee to look at ways it can come to an "interim
investment agreement" with Northwest Airlines before its March 2004
"We believe all
stakeholders must ultimately share in solving NWA's problems, but
recognize that a pilot investment could represent an intermediate
step on the way to a long-term solution," NWA Master Executive
Council (MEC) Chairman Capt. Mark McClain said. "Since April, the
NWA pilot group has recognized the long-term viability problems
facing our company and that an investment by labor will need to be
part of the solution."
The MEC Negotiating Committee's proposal outline would
investigate a possible dollar amount of a pilot investment,
appropriate quid pro quos, and provisions and conditions that would
need to be met.
"The negotiating committee has been asked to develop a proposal
which will enhance NWA's long-term viability," McClain said. "We
expect any investment by the pilot group will be rewarded and
management would be required to share in any cost savings
simultaneous with NWA pilots."
