With a Special MEC Update for Wednesday, April 7, 2010, this is
MEC Chairman Captain Wendy Morse.
The New York Times this afternoon published a story that reports that “UAL Corporation, the parent of United Airlines, and US Airways are in talks to merge.” The story went on to say that United and US Airways “are deep in their merger discussions, though a transaction is not expected to be announced for at least several weeks.”

The United Master Executive Council has confirmed that this report is speculation. While talks could develop at some future date, with US Airways or any other carrier, presently there are no meaningful merger discussions with US Airways.

Our position on mergers remains unchanged. We are opposed to any merger that is not beneficial to the careers and the long-term future of United pilots. We vehemently oppose any merger that would not lead to a stronger and viable United Airlines. This position has been once again, as recently as this evening, been made clear to the CEO of United Airlines.

As further substantiated information becomes available, we will pass it along. Please monitor your email inboxes for more from MEC Communications.
