But within minutes the President invoked his emergency powers to order the pilots back to work.
A Presidentially appointed panel will now hammer out a labor contract proposal within the next 30 days.
If neither side likes and can't agree it'll be another 30 days before pilots can strike again. and even then congress has the right to intervene and propose its own deal.
