The Northwest Airlines mechanics union, citing progress before the National Mediation Board adjourned talks between the union and the airline on January 12, today called for negotiations to resume ``with or without the Board.''

``We're baffled by the Board's decision to cut off the talks after only a few days when real progress was being made,'' said Steve MacFarlane, president of Local 33 of the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association (AMFA). ``Although we still have a way to go, in that short time a number of key issues were resolved. We urge Northwest to rejoin us at the bargaining table, with or without the Board, so both parties can return as soon as possible to focusing completely on serving Northwest air travelers.''
