US flight attendants to go on strike against four airlines

The union of flight attendants prepares to go on &to=http://english.pravda.ru/comp/2002/07/16/32572.html' target=_blank>strike trying to hold onto jobs in the airline industry. That has Hawaii's tourism officials worried since three of those airlines supply half of the state's domestic seats.

Hawaiian Airlines flight attendants aren't sure if their local union will call for a strike vote, reports Hawaii Channel.

According to Washington Post, "We want them to withdraw their motions to terminate our contracts and agree to negotiate in good faith," Friend said. "But if that fails, on the day that the first flight attendant contract is thrown out by a bankruptcy court, we will exercise our right to self-help by withdrawing our services or going on strike."

Spokesmen for the airlines declined to say whether the carriers would withdraw their petitions to nullify the contracts.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?
