  I can't fathom how being able to dump your pension obligation can in any way be considered legal.
United Attendants Pose for Risque Calendar - Yahoo! News: "CHICAGO - While some United Airlines employees are using placards and pamphlets to protest the loss of their pensions, a group of flight attendants is taking a more risque tack — showing some skin to publicize their plight.

The five women, ranging in age from 55 to 64, posed for a 2006 calendar that depicts them in various states of undress in front of a vintage plane, on a park bench and on a plane's wing, among other locations. Reflecting a mix of humor and anger, it was released to coincide with a bankruptcy court's approval this week of United's plan to terminate $9.8 billion in employee pension obligations.

While United is never named nor its airplanes shown, every photograph in 'Stewardesses Stripped (Of Their Pension?)' is accompanied by a zinger related to the record pension default by the Elk Grove Village, Ill.-based airline.

'Coffee, tea, or me without a pension?' reads one. 'Marry me, fly free — but don't expect anything from my pension,' says another. And the cover shot: 'Are your butts covered? We thought ours were too.'"
