Northwest, mechanics end talks with no pact

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Talks between Northwest Airlines Corp. and its striking mechanics ended early Sunday with no agreement and no clear plans to continue negotiations, officials said.

Union negotiators "are returning to their homes, and we do not have an agreement," negotiations spokesman Jeff Mathews said.

"Additional talks for today are not scheduled," Northwest spokesman Kurt Ebenhoch said.

Northwest is seeking $1.1 billion in annual labor cost savings and has said rising fuel prices mean it will probably raise that target. The company is in talks with all of its workers.
