Alaska Airlines Flight Attendants Reach Tentative Agreement with Company
March 16, 2006
Washington, DC – After two and a half years of negotiations and last year’s rejected tentative agreement, the Master Executive Council representing Alaska Airlines flight attendants, members of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, announced yesterday that they have reached a new tentative agreement with management.
“We are thrilled to have reached this industry leading contract,” said Veda Shook, Alaska Airlines Master Executive Council President. “This has been a long process, but we feel that this tentative agreement reflects the needs and concerns our members have expressed.”
The recent tentative includes a wage increase for all flight attendants, along with other improvements. Complete details of the agreement will be released pending ratification by the membership.
For over 60 years, the Association of Flight Attendants has been serving as the voice for flight attendants in the workplace, in the aviation industry, in the media and on Capitol Hill. More than 46,000 flight attendants at 20 airlines come together to form AFA-CWA, the world’s largest flight attendant union. AFA is part of the 700,000-member strong Communications Workers of America (CWA), AFL-CIO. Visit us at www.afanet.org.
