US Airways negotiates new union contract with flight instructors

Following up on a story previously reported in JURIST's Paper Chase, US Airways released a statement earlier today announcing that it has reached a new union contract with flight instructors. The airline late Friday had asked a federal bankruptcy court to allow it to impose substantial wage cuts on union employees. It is not clear if today's development will alter that request.
