Ual ual unit attacked on minority hiring

UAL Incs United Airlines was accused in a congressional hearing today of locking blacks out of key jobs but the company said it had made tremendous progress in minority hiring

The issue was aired during a hearing of a House Government Operations subcommittee whose chairman Rep Cardiss Collins called the treatment of minorities by the countrys largest airline pathetic

It strikes me odd said the Illinois Democrat that the number of white women pilots is more than double that of black pilots and that white women are more fairly represented in upper management

United has been under a court order since 1976 to increase its minority employment

David Pringle Uniteds senior vice president for human resources said We take a very aggressive approach to minority hiring and have made tremendous progress we will continue to pursue even wider goals
