Hawaiian Airlines Flight Attendants Ratify Concessionary Contract

Date: March 10, 2003

WASHINGTON, DC — Hawaiian Airlines flight attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants, AFL-CIO, have ratified a package of contract concessions that will save the airline $3.475 million per year.

The agreement was ratified today with 87% percent of flight attendant ballots being cast for the agreement.

Providing the company with significant productivity improvements allowed the flight attendants to preserve their pay and health benefits. The airline will now have more flexibility in scheduling and the ability to code share with American Eagle and America West Airlines. Changes to the reserve program and modifications in the sick leave policy and accrual rates were also made.

“Hawaiian Airlines flight attendants have stepped up to the challenges in our turbulent industry by continuing to provide the highest level of safety and service to our passengers,” said AFA Hawaiian Airlines Master Executive Council President Sharon Soper. “Now we are standing together to do our part to ensure the long-term financial success of our airline.”

More than 50,000 flight attendants at 26 airlines, including 900 at Hawaiian, join together to form AFA, the world’s largest flight attendant union. Visit us @ www.afanet.org.
