US Airways chief says labor strife worsening

US Airways Chief Executive Officer Doug Parker says he faces a challenge integrating the cultures and work groups of US Airways and America West Airlines.

Twenty months after a merger of the airlines, the combined carrier lacks single contracts covering its pilots, flight attendants, mechanics and baggage handlers. All want payback for sacrifices through two bankruptcies at the old US Airways.

Parker and his management team hope to have single contracts in place by the end of the year.
