UPS PILOTS THREATEN TO CALL IN SICK

Some United Parcel Service pilots have threatened to call in sick this week during the company's busiest season to protest slow progress in labor negotiations, although the company said there was no sign of a sickout today.

But the Independent Pilots Association, which represents the company's 1,200 pilots, is advising members to ignore disruptive activities and to continue working.

According to UPS spokesman Bob Kenney, the company's pilots reported for work today and operations were normal.

Robert M. Miller, the union's president, said a work stoppage or slowdown would be illegal because the association still is negotiating a new labor contract with UPS.
