The pilots of US Airways Express carrier Piedmont Airlines have applied for mediation from the National Mediation Board after 11 months of what they characterize as nearly fruitless contract talks with the company. The ALPA-represented pilots claim that management “stalling” has resulted in the sides reaching a consensus on only two sections of the proposed contract.

According to the union, management has routinely responded to proposals from the pilots with a terse “current book or less”–meaning the company would agree only to the present language in the contract or pilot concessions. ALPA claims management has also resisted attempts to schedule new negotiating sessions, offering only two days a month over the next five months.
