Mediation Board Accepts Pilots Application

The National Mediation Board has accepted
the National Pilots Association application for mediation services in its
negotiations with AirTran management.“Late yesterday afternoon we received a fax from the NMB, which was
jointly addressed to AirTran and the NPA, informing us that our request for
mediation services had been accepted, docketed and assigned a mediator,” said
Capt. Allen Philpot.
  Capt. Philpot went on to say, “while no dates have been set by the NMB the
NPA is ready to go and looks forward to sitting down at the bargaining table
with AirTran management anytime and place the mediator chooses.”
