BEVERAGES

Northwest Airlines Corp. told a U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New York that it had reached a tentative agreement with the union representing ground workers, but talks with pilots and flight attendants appeared to be deadlocked.

Northwest asked the judge overseeing the bankruptcy case for permission to invalidate its labor contracts with the pilots and flight attendants.

In announcing the agreement with the International Assn. of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, an attorney for Northwest said the airline was hopeful that the tentative deal would be approved by the union's membership in three weeks.
