Northwest may lay off workers under new contract. A tentative agreement between Northwest Airlines and its ground workers union would allow the company to lay off 700 workers, union representatives said. The airline does not now know how many positions it will eliminate. May 23, 2006
Northwest Airlines and the International Assn. of Machinists, representing approximately 5,600 equipment service and stock clerks, announced a tentative labor agreement Friday. The ESSC employees were one of two IAM groups to reject a previous agreement that was accepted by customer service and reservation staff. "We were able to get the company to change some of their demands. Even with this movement, the committee is still disappointed. However, the committee recommends ratification of this tentative agreement to avoid the elimination of our contract," the union's negotiating committee said on its website. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. May 22, 2006
