    Default United Airlines pilots approve 2-year contract extension

    CHICAGO (AP) — United Airlines pilots have ratified a contract extension that includes pay raises and gives the company more certainty about labor costs.

    The Air Line Pilots Association said Friday that 79 percent of pilots who voted agreed to add two years to their contract, making it run through January 2019.

    United has about 12,000 pilots.

    Details of the extension aren't being released, but the union says it puts the pilots' compensation at the top of the industry. United says it will create stability for the airline and the pilots.

    United Pilots Call Bethune a Diversionary Tactic by Investors

    Lining up Continental former Chief Executive Officer Gordon Bethune as part of a board slate for United Airlines is merely a ruse by two hedge funds to “smash and grab from United’s coffers,” according to the carrier’s pilot union.

    The funds enlisted Bethune “to play on employees’ good will and feelings of nostalgia,” leaders of United’s chapter of the Air Line Pilots Association said in a letter to its more than 11,000 members Monday. By seeking to place six directors on the United Continental Holdings Inc. board, the investors may interfere with the changes being implemented by Chief Executive Officer Oscar Munoz, the union said.

    “We also have received a firm commitment from Mr. Munoz to address and fix the myriad problems that have been obvious to all employees for some time,” the union said.
