UAL will keep 700 flight attendants on the payroll.

The flight attendants were hired by United Airlines during a four-week pilots' strike that was honored by the airline's flight attendants. The agreement between United and the Assn. of Flight Attendants to retain the 700 strikebreakers settled all back-to-work issues left unresolved by the union's support of the pilots' strike. Most union flight attendants refused to work during the 29-day strike, and the status of those hired during the walkout was an issue after the settlement.
