United Airlines Reaches Deal With Pilot Union

Merger pains


Following many months of negotiations, United Continental (UAL: 18.08, -0.08, -0.44%) met a pivotal point in its two-year integration process on Friday when it reached a deal with a workers union that is comprised of some 11,000 pilots.

Since United and Continental merged, United Airlines has been undergoing the extensive process of integrating two massive airlines, including choosing the unions it will renew contracts with and which systems it will use moving forward.
