US Airways pilots picket Philadelphia Airport

US Airways pilots picketed Philadelphia International Airport's International Terminal on 08-Sep-2010, in protest at former America West Airlines pilots still not gaining a joint collective bargaining agreement with US Airways pilots, five years since the merger of the airlines (Philadelphia Inquirer, 09-Sep-2010). US Airways pilots who went through the carrier’s bankruptcies in 2002 and 2004 also claim they lost half their pay and their pension. US Airways stated talks with the pilots are ongoing, but the pilots need to resolve seniority issues among themselves.
