    Default Union says UAL's pilots vote to authorize strike

    The Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA), which represents pilots who flew for what were United and Continental Airlines before the two merged in 2010, said 99 percent of the voters supported a withdrawal of services, if required.

    Pilots from United and Continental have been working without new contracts since they agreed to concessions in the airline industry's financial traumas last decade, during which United went into bankruptcy and Continental took stringent cost-cutting measures

    Deregulation of the airlines wasn't kind to the big carriers. New low cost start-ups brought them all down pensions and all. Southwest Airlines and JetBlue could get fat

    .United Continental Pilots Approve Joint Union Contract
    The new four-year contract, which includes raises averaging 43 percent and bigger retirement contributions, covers those who came from United as well as pilots who flew for Continental before the carriers merged in 2010 into United Continental Holdings Inc. Pilots now only fly under the United name.

    As part of the deal, the airline's roughly 10,000 pilots also will divide a $400 million lump sum. In exchange, the contract gives United Continental the ability to launch a major expansion of the use of larger regional jets with 70 or more seats. Those jets, most ranging in size from 50 to 76 seats, are operated by regional airlines.
