Negotiations fall through for Northwest Airlines
MINNEAPOLIS -- Mechanics at Northwest Airlines Corp. said they asked to be released from negotiations Tuesday after the nation's fourth-largest carrier rejected their pay-cut offer. Release from the talks would start a 30-day clock running toward a strike. Northwest shares sank further on Tuesday, as chief executive Doug Steenland said the airline must get labor concessions by the end of 2005 or face the possibility of bankruptcy. However, Steenland also said a pay cut offer by mechanics was inadequate, and flight attendants have repeated their opposition to cuts.
