Pilots’ union leaders at Continental Airlines say they’re taking steps to look out for workers’ interest in case the carrier merges with another airline.
Tom Donaldson, chairman of the Air Line Pilots Association at Continental, said Friday that his members would be happy if the Houston-based airline remains as it is, but can’t ignore speculation about mergers.
“‘We will not stand idly by and allow a change in the airline landscape without taking steps to protect the interests of our pilots,'” Donaldson said. “‘We’ve made huge concessions over the past number of years.'”
Donaldson said his union expected management to cooperate with it in any merger decisions.
