Company Watch - Northwest Airlines.

Northwest pilots, management keep talking past court deadline. Northwest Airlines and its pilots continued to negotiate on a concessionary agreement yesterday even as a ruling by the bankruptcy court on the carrier's bid to impose a new contract was believed to be imminent. The parties originally had until Feb. 17 to reach an accord before Judge Allan Gropper was to have ruled on Northwest's request to cancel its labor agreements but were given an extension through March 1. Northwest's pilots, represented by the Air Line Pilots Assn., have voted overwhelmingly in favor of walking off their jobs if the carrier imposes a new contract, with 92% of pilots favoring a strike in a recent vote that attracted 4,413 of 4,851 eligible pilots.

Northwest, pilots continue talks. Northwest Airlines continued negotiations with its pilots union Thursday. An airline spokesman said the two sides are making progress.

Northwest reaches agreement with attendants; pilot deal awaits. Northwest Airlines and its flight attendants, represented by the Professional Flight Attendants Assn., reached an eleventh-hour agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement yesterday that, if ratified by union members, will result in the carrier achieving the $195 million in labor savings it sought from cabin staff when it entered bankruptcy. The bankruptcy court judge had been scheduled to rule on a request by NWA to reject the existing contract with the attendants. PFAA members have been working under an interim agreement providing the airline with $117 million in savings on an annual basis. Mar 2, 2006

Northwest union authorized to call strike, judge to rule today. Northwest Airlines pilots have authorized their leaders to call a strike if contract talks break down.

Northwest and unions go overtime. Northwest Airlines and the unions representing its pilots and flight attendants were granted a second extension, this time through March 1, by a US Bankruptcy Court judge Friday afternoon.
