FEDERAL JUDGE ORDERS FLIGHT ATTENDANTS TO REPORT FOR WORK

 FEDERAL JUDGE ORDERS FLIGHT ATTENDANTS TO REPORT FOR WORK
 ARLINGTON, Va., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- At 8:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 5, a federal district judge in Pittsburgh issued a temporary restraining order against the Association of Flight Attendants. The order prohibits the AFA from engaging in a sympathy strike with the IAM and orders the AFA leaders to contact each flight attendant expeditiously and notify them of the order.
 USAir (NYSE: U) argued that the USAir/AFA contract requires flight attendants to report to work and fly their schedules, regardless of any strike by another employee group. The court agreed, ordering the union leadership to "take all steps within their power to maintain the normal operations of the airline."
 Although AFA had ordered USAir flight attendants to refuse to work, more than 95 percent of the flight attendants ignored the union's advice Monday and reported to work. As planned, USAir expects to operate its contingency flight schedule for Tuesday.
 USAir is pleased that the court rejected the AFA leadership's misguided policy of obstructing the company's contingency plans for operations during the IAM strike.
