American Airlines came up with a novel contract proposal to its pilots yesterday. The carier offered pay raises of 15 percent to 22 percent on August 31 provided the pilots agree not to strike and to accept binding arbitration if the two sides can't agree on other issues in 120 days.

Both sides, which have fought each other over negotiating tables and in courtrooms, pledged to make American's pilots the highest-paid in the industry.

"It's the largest carrier in the world. We should be compensated accordingly," said union president, John Darrah.
