    UPS Pilots Union Sues FAA Challenging New Anti-Fatigue Rules - Businessweek

    The Independent Pilots Association filed a lawsuit today in the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington seeking to have cargo operators covered “because of the safety benefits provided by the rule,” William Trent, the union's general counsel, said in an e-mailed statement.

    While the agency had proposed applying the new measures to cargo-carrier pilots, the final rule exempted them because the costs were too steep, U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said yesterday.
