Bush and Airlines

NPR's Alison Aubrey reports on President Bush's intervention yesterday that would prevent airlines from going on strike.

As negotiating officials for Northwest Airlines officials and mechanics near a strike deadline, the President's executive order puts a 60-day freeze on any strike action.
