PILOT “SICK-OUT” AT CONTINENTAL CANCELS FLIGHTS

Continental Airlines was forced to cancel 24 of its flights yesterday after several pilots called in sick. Most of the canceled flights affected Continental’s hub at Newark Liberty International airport in New Jersey.

The action is thought to be connected to the ongoing labour negotiations between Continental and its pilots. However such “sick-out” action is not allowed under the U.S. Railway Labor Act, the federal law that governs airline labor relations.
