United and Continental pilots’ rally planned in New York City

United and Continental Airlines pilots, represented by the Air Line Pilots Association International, are preparing to rally in New York’s financial district this week.

According to a press release from the pilots’ association, more than 700 pilots are expected to picket to alert the nation that “all is not well” with the merger.

“Real progress with implementing the merger takes the involvement of pilots and an acknowledgment by management of the contributions that pilots make in creating a successful airline,” the release states. “It is past time for management to get serious about negotiating a fair joint contract that will help unlock the synergies from the transaction and allow the investment community, employees and passengers to benefit. Pilots are key to a successful merger.”

The “informational” picketing in the financial district, followed by a group rally in Battery Park, will be held Tuesday in New York.
