Mesaba Employees Will Appeal Strike Ban

 - November 6, 2006, 10:55 AM

U.S. bankruptcy court judge Gregory Kishel again gave Mesaba Airlines permission to impose contract terms on its pilots, flight attendants and mechanics after an appeals court judge overturned Kishel’s first ruling to allow management to force concessions. Days later, Kishel agreed to enforce an injunction sought by Mesaba that effectively bars the employees from striking. All three employee groups threatened to walk out if the airline imposed contract terms.
