A storm system will begin to impact Southern Colorado by late Friday morning. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to snow by later Friday afternoon. Locations that are higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, due to them seeing cooler temperatures. So, Teller County, far northwest El Paso County, and the Wet & Sangre de Cristo Mountains will likely see several inches of wet snow. The major cities will see far less amounts and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning.
United Airlines' flight attendants union says it'll stage intermittent strikes if the company goes ahead with a plan to terminate traditional employee pensions.
Last week, the airline agreed to a tentative plan to shift responsibility for the pensions to the government's Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.
United says it will save $645million per year. But Association of Flight Attendants spokesman Greg Davidowitch says the plan would destroy workers' retirement security.
United spokeswoman Jean Medina says the company thinks the flight attendants' proposed actions would be illegal. She says United would still consider any alternative pension plan that meets its business needs.
A federal bankruptcy judge is expected to rule on the settlement following a May 10th hearing.
