WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown said he is disappointed by United Airlines' decision to downsize its Cleveland operations. He suggested he doesn't consider United's announcement the last word.
"For years, the city of Cleveland and its workers have loyally served United and Continental in order to make the Cleveland hub one of the best in the nation," Brown said in a statement. "When United announced its merger with Continental, it made a deal with the city of Cleveland, the state of Ohio, and Cleveland workers. I intend to make sure it lives up to the terms of that agreement or finds a solution that avoids job loss for more than 400 workers."
