Northwest Pilots Explore Agreement with NWA

Try to see it my way
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 meeting.

"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."
