From one strike to another, this time American Airlines pilots are picketing at O'Hare.
CHICAGO, IL (Catholic Online) - About 100 members of the Allied Pilots Association are picketing at O'Hare International Airport as a protest over bankruptcy reorganization plans.
The union believes the airline is using the bankruptcy to get more work from pilots for less pay.
American Airlines is trying to cut costs by $1 billion as part of their reorganization plan.
The strike is expected to cause some delays for passengers, so anyone flying out of O'Hare should be prepared.
