Northwest Plans to Recall Flight Attendants

Northwest Airlines said it would recall all 1,131 of its furloughed flight attendants, but it was hard to tell whether that was good news for a recovering airline or preparation for a strike that could kill it, the Associated Press reports. A spokesman wouldn't comment Thursday on whether a possible strike is another reason for the recall. Flight attendants have been trying to win legal permission for unannounced walkouts aimed at pressuring the airline to offer them a better contract. Mollie Reiley, head of the Northwest branch of the Association of Flight Attendants, said recalled workers won't help the airline fight a strike. Northwest imposed $195 million in cuts on flight attendants with a judge's permission on July 31, after union members twice voted two negotiated settlements.
