USAir pilot union to weigh pay cuts, furloughs today

March 29, 1995|By a Sun Staff Writer

The executive council for USAir's pilot union is expected to meet today in Reston, Va., to consider an agreement that would cut pilots' pay by 20 percent and allow the carrier to furlough up to 300 pilots.

The union's leaders were scheduled to meet yesterday to review the agreement, but the meeting was postponed to give the two sides time to work out the details of the proposal, a union official said.

The agreement reached Saturday between the company and the union provides for $190 million annually in concessions, including a 20 percent pay cut that would save the company $150 million a year for the next five years. The pilots' executive council is not expected to vote today, since the agreement is contingent on USAir's other three unions striking similar deals with the company.
