TWA Flight Attendants Strike for 45 Days.

San Francisco, 1973.TWA, Pan American, American, and United Airlines had a "mutual aid pact" such that TWA was receiving $2,000,000 a day from the other airlines enabling them to delay contract negotiations while the flight attendants were on strike. The Transport Workers Union, subpoenaed TWA's books, the federal court agreed to hear the case and a contract settlement was quickly negotiated. (Union WAGE newspaper Jan-Feb. 1974). Over 300 flight attendants were walking this picket line.
