US Airways Transition Dispute #10

1 minute read


In September 2011, a System Board of Adjustment denied a grievance filed by the union representing US Airways’ pilots challenging the Company’s closure of its Boston, Las Vegas, and LaGuardia pilot domiciles. Compass Lexecon’s Darin Lee testified at the arbitration, demonstrating that the Company’s decision to close the domiciles did not violate its Collective Bargaining Agreement because it would enable the carrier to more productively utilize its pilot workforce by shifting reserve pilots to other, more efficient domiciles. Dr. Lee was supported by Ethan Singer in Compass Lexecon’s Boston office and worked with Robert Siegel and Guy Brenner at O’Melveny & Myers LLP.
