Heard this rumor from a friend of a friend (I know...)supposedly from a DAL Rep.

Any truth to this?

I'm trying to think of a reason they would want that. I'm not sure what the rush was in the first place to get the SLI done. There's no way it'll be needed for a couple years anyway. Maybe they've come to the same conclusion and want to give it more time to reach a negotiated settlement. Did you hear it from the same guy you heard your "DL 757s can't use VNAV" rumor?

Actually no, and I hope it's not true and we stick to the agreed to time lines.

Talked to my rep....he said nothing of that sort was communicated to him. Arbitration panel and time-frame has already been planned and announced. According to my rep, SLI will be announced no later than Nov. 20...period.

And who will the Arbitrator be?

This was announced:
The members of the panel are Fredric Horowitz, a California labor attorney; Dana Eischen, an attorney who worked as an independent arbitrator for Major League Baseball in the late 1990s and was a member of a Presidential Emergency Board appointed to head off a railroad strike in 1975; and Richard Bloch, who sided in 2005 with the Philadelphia Eagles as arbitrator of their decision to bench star receiver Terrell Owens, who now plays with the Dallas Cowboys.

Horowitz and Bloch also served on an arbitration panel selected in 2006 to determine whether Delta, which was under bankruptcy protection at the time, could void its pilots' contract and impose pay and benefit cuts unilaterally. Delta's pilots union, which had threatened to strike, eventually agreed to concessions, and that panel never issued a ruling.

Richard Bloch has been the arbitrator for our no-furlough system board grievances and for our Intl block hour grievances....

The furlough one dragged on and on and then he makes an announcement that he has made a decision but won't release it for 4 to 6 weeks. Everytime he makes a grand statement of his completion and then doesn't release the results.
