The Nation : Pilots Break With Strikers

March 07, 1985

Pilots at Pan American World Airways agreed to cross picket lines set up by striking ground crews and work to "restore normal service" to the financially troubled airline. The agreement meant the airline could immediately increase its operations to 50%, compared to the 33% it has been operating at since the walkout began Feb. 28, Pan Am Chairman C. Edward Acker said in New York. The top priority will be restoring 18 international flights and two domestic runs: New York-Los Angeles and New York-Miami, the company said. The agreement was a setback to both the striking Transport Workers Union and the airline's 5,000 flight attendants, who have set an April 1 strike deadline.
