Order prevents mechanics at NWA from engaging in any actions that disrupt

Not just UA?

...A federal judge in Minneapolis late Monday issued an order preventing mechanics at Northwest Airlines from engaging in any actions that disrupt the company's flight schedule. The airline had requested a temporary restraining order against the mechanics, accusing them of conducting an illegal work slowdown heading into one of the busiest travel weeks of the year...

AND: "While we regret having to take this step, there is clear evidence that a deliberate and organized job action orchestrated by AMFA's leadership is taking place," said Bob Brodin, Northwest senior vice president - labor relations. ``These actions are a clear violation of the Railway Labor Act and threaten the travel plans of thousands of Northwest passengers over the holidays. We have asked the court to order AMFA and its members to cease all illegal job actions immediately or risk facing contempt of court fines or other sanctions.''
