FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NATIONAL MEDIATION BOARD
Re: Delta Airlines and the Air Line Pilots Association
The National Mediation Board (NMB) announced today that it proffered binding arbitration in a contract dispute between Delta Airlines and the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA), and that ALPA rejected the NMB's offer to resolve the dispute through arbitration. The NMB sent both parties a letter today, advising them a 30-day cooling off period begins March 30. No strike action can legally occur before 12:01 a.m. on April 29.
In further attempts to resolve this dispute, the NMB anticipates calling public interest meetings with Delta and ALPA the week of April 16, 2001.
