AMR/US Airways Deal Faces Pilot Seniority Hassles

Category : Business

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (TheStreet) — The odds may appear to favor a merger between AMR and US Airways, but that isn’t to say that a merger would provide an easy solution to the accompanying pilot seniority integration problems.

In fact, it is difficult to imagine more complexities than those involved in integrating two pilot groups from two different unions, each of which includes angry minorities of pilots who have filed lawsuits contesting the seniority practices pursued in two previous mergers.

In 2001, American merged with TWA. The TWA pilots, who felt they were badly treated in the subsequent seniority integration, have continued to object in various forums. In 2005, US Airways merged with America West. An arbitrator issued a controversial seniority ruling so troubling to the majority of the pilots that rather than implement it, they left one union and formed another. That resulted in a series of suits. …

Hiraoka rues resumption of executions

Category : World News

Former Justice Minister Hideo Hiraoka said it is regrettable that Japan resumed executing death-row inmates in March without holding sufficient debate following a 20-month hiatus.
“I regret that executions took place last month without being examined or discussed . . . regarding the way in which the death penalty is enforced and death-row inmates are treated in Japan,” said Hiraoka, who was justice minister for four months until January, told a symposium last week hosted by the Delegation of the European Union to Japan and the EU Institute in Japan at Waseda University in Tokyo.

Mad Men is hardly stealing the show when it comes to ratings

Category : Business

After tons of hype, viewing figures for the US series hover somewhere around the level of circulation achieved by the excellent Garden News

The power of the press or, indeed, TV? Forget it. After weeks of relentless hype, Mad Men comes back for a fifth series (this time on Sky Atlantic) and nets just 98,000 viewers first time around – far below the 355,000 it attracted on BBC2. Don’t automatically think big, glamorous television numbers, then. Think readers – 97,000 of them for a little specialist magazine success like Garden News. Because some show’s up on a screen, rather than lying on a newsstand, doesn’t mean it’s taking pasty-loving Britain by storm.

Tweet justice

A former Indian cricket official tweeting about a former New Zealand cricket player loses his libel case: damages £90,000, costs to lawyers on both sides head towards £1m. Libel lawyers point out that “false statements on Twitter or other social media will be treated just as seriously as those on traditional media”. There’ll always be new ways of keeping the bewigged caravan rolling fruitfully forward.
