United Airlines Makes Deal With Pilot Negotiators

DALLAS (AP) – United Airlines says it has a deal with union negotiators on a new labor contract with its own pilots and those from the former Continental Airlines.

United Continental Holdings Inc. said Friday that the agreement is an important step in creating a single workforce at the company, which was formed by a 2010 merger.

The deal is still subject to approval by governing boards of the two pilot groups and by rank-and-file pilots.

Both the United and former Continental pilots are represented by the Air Line Pilots Association.
