Aloha Airline pilots picket


Several dozen pilots picketed outside the Aloha Airlines corporate offices on Thursday over the company's reorganization plans.

Management is expected to file a motion in bankruptcy court on Friday to terminate labor contracts and benefit pension plans.

Pilots say they've already made many concessions and can't afford to lose any more.

"They want a free hand in setting their own hourly wages, benefits, work rules, everything that governs the way we work as pilots. They want to put it back together again and it's utterly unacceptable," says Steve Brenessel, retired pilot.

Aloha officials say they're seeking cuts to preserve jobs, and offered to increase company share in contribution plans to make up for the loss of benefit pensions.

Picketing on Sat and Sun at the airport should get even more press.

FA's and pilots will both be there.
come out and support them and get your free tee shirt.

11am to 1pm at the Inter-Island terminal.

IH/D8D, I'm curious why you're agreeing with anything vanman's bothered to post here. You don't think he posted this in support of AQ, do you?
