NC judge mulls US Airways claim of pilot slowdown

Local Court News Posted on

A federal judge in North Carolina says he'll rule soon on a lawsuit by US Airways claiming its pilots are staging an illegal work slowdown.

The Charlotte Observer reported Tuesday that the union representing US Airways pilots says the airline is trying to intimidate the pilots into flying on time no matter the risk.

The sides wrapped up their case in Charlotte on Monday.

Tempe, Ariz.-based US Airways says in the lawsuit filed late last month that its pilots are deliberately delaying flights and that its busiest hub in Charlotte has been disproportionately affected.

Capt. Michael Cleary of the Charlotte-based US Airline Pilots Association testified no slowdown is taking place.

The two sides have had a contract dispute since US Airways merged with America West in 2005.
