AIR LINE PILOTS ASSOCIATION ISSUES STATEMENT ON ALLEGED SLOWDOWN AT UNITED AIRLINES

 CHICAGO, Nov. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The Air Line Pilots Association issued the following:
 In response to press reports concerning an alleged employee slowdown at United Airlines, the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) at United emphasized today that the union has not ordered, and does not support or condone, any slowdown or similar activity by pilots. ALPA further noted that, in its view, no such slowdown is taking place.
 In contrast, ALPA stated, United management has made repeated public threats to dismantle the airline and destroy the jobs of thousands of United employees, and ALPA has urged all pilots to attempt to put these threats out of their minds while engaged in flight operations. Given management's repeated threats, ALPA believes it is commendable that so many United employees continue to report loyally to work and provide efficient and safe service to the traveling public. In ALPA's view, management could better serve the traveling public by ceasing and desisting from its program of threats and harassment aimed at United's employees and allowing the employees to get on with their jobs.
