NWA Mechanics Get Benefits

The 1,600 union mechanics who went on strike against Northwest Airlines are collecting unemployment checks.

Nelson said there are a "couple hundred" mechanics who are attempting to show that they had good cause for not contacting the state to request benefits when they were eligible.

AMFA Local 33 told members on its website: "You should appeal within the department and do so on your own. You do not need a lawyer to appeal. Do not rely on Local 33, AMFA or its attorneys to appeal your claim."
