United Airlines' pilots union is calling for the resignation of chief executive Glenn Tilton. The union has increased its criticism of Tilton amid growing concerns about compensation. Pilot pay was cut sharply between 2002 and 2006, when the company was in or recovering from bankruptcy. Jean Medina, a spokeswoman for United, said the call for Tilton's resignation "is an obvious and predictable attempt to deflect attention from ALPA's illegal activity cited in our lawsuit."
