Continental and United pilots will pound the pavement today to protest outsourcing. The union representing both groups of pilots calls Tuesday's event informational picketing. The protest starts at 11am this morning at Bush Intercontinental Airport along JFK Boulevard.

The union claims Continental plans to use new planes built overseas that seat more than 50 people, and that could cause some pilots to lose their jobs.
