United Airlines Flight Attendants Announce CHAOS(TM) Strike Ballot Results Tomorrow

Chicago O'Hare Airport, 12:30 p.m. CST, Upper Level

Near the United Airlines Ticket Counters Between Doors 6 & 7



Apr 02, 2001, 01:00 ET from Association of Flight Attendants, AFL-CIO

    WASHINGTON, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines flight attendants,
 represented by the Association of Flight Attendants, AFL-CIO, will announce
 the results of their strike ballot count at a press conference on Tuesday,
 April 3. The announcement will be made near the United Airlines ticket counter
 between doors 6 and 7 on the upper level at Chicago O'Hare airport at 12:30
 CST.
     If United goes forward with its purchase of US Airways without an
 agreement on a waiver from the flight attendants, it will be a unilateral
 change in the contract and a "major dispute" under the Railway Labor Act. The
 United flight attendants will then respond with CHAOS(TM) strike actions to
 the major dispute first initiated by the airline. The United flight attendant
 strike threat is the only current dispute in the airline industry that is not
 subject to regulation by the National Mediation Board, a 30-day "cooling off"
 period, or intervention of a Presidential Emergency Board.
     Create Havoc Around Our System(TM), is AFA's trademarked strategy of
 public information and targeted work actions using random, unannounced
 strikes. Strikes or any other kind of job action cannot begin unless the U.S.
 Department of Justice approves the merger and United goes through with the
 purchase of US Airways without an agreement on a waiver.
     The 25,000 United Airlines flight attendants are joined together in AFA,
 the world's largest flight attendant union.  Visit @ http://www.afanet.org .
