    They can't have a date yet, as the NMB has not announced a stalement in negotiations. You have at least 30 days if/when they do announce a stalemate.

    As an aside, I say good for the pilots. 3 years is ridiculous time to go since the end of the last contract. Add in the fact the airline industry as a whole is not shy about taking money back from employees when times are tough, the employees need to get all they can during the good times.

    Will not shoot the messenger, but might ask that some restraint in the title be in order. There is no pending or impending strike at this point.
