Delta Air Lines and pilots request arbitration offer.

AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION-(C)1997-2001 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

Delta Air Lines and the Air Line Pilots Association jointly requested the US National Mediation Board (NMB) to make an offer of arbitration on 1 March.

The request brings the parties closer to a possible 30-day 'cooling off' period after which the union can strike if one party refuses arbitration. The carrier's pilots recently voted to authorise strike action.

The NMB is not obliged to agree to the request, Reuters reported.
