Alaska Airlines and the Association of Flight Attendants said they have reached tentative agreement on a new five-year contract for the carrier´s 3,300 flight attendants.
Once the tentative agreement is approved by the union´s leadership, Alaska Airlines´ flight attendants will conduct a ratification vote that is expected to be completed in mid-February 2014.
The current contract became amendable on May 1, 2012. Contracts in the airline industry do not expire. Once they become amendable, the current contract remains in effect until a new agreement is ratified.
Alaska Airlines, a subsidiary of Alaska Air Group (NYSE: ALK), together with its partner regional airlines, serves nearly 100 cities through an expansive network in Alaska, the Lower 48, Hawaii, Canada and Mexico. The company´s website is at www.alaskaair.com.
