"Two men called in sick but we were able to confirm they really were sick," said Richard Tyler, an American Airlines spokesman. The work stoppage was triggered by arguments over a worker who was promoted to an upgraded job in Puerto Rico, but then failed his 90-day probation and was returned to Tucson, Tyler said. The strikers believed he should have been allowed to keep the position, he said. The airline obtained an injunction against the strike from the U.S. District Court in Phoenix and managed to keep its planes on schedule with the help of supervisors and workers flown in from El Paso and San Diego, Tyler said.
