Lawyers for Northwest Airlines and its flight attendants square off in New York
St. Paul, Minn. — Lawyers for Northwest Airlines and its flight attendants argued the untested legal question of whether workers can strike a bankrupt airline.
The flight attendants union has said it will begin intermittent work stoppages Tuesday if the judge allows a strike to go ahead.
Northwest says that could force the airline to shut down, and the judge should block any job actions.
