Washington, DC – Alaska Airlines Flight Attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA), today begin voting on a new contract that includes top-of-the-industry improvements in many categories. Voting concludes on February 14 at 9:00 am PST with results announced shortly after.
“Alaska Airlines Flight Attendants have earned industry awards over the years and worked with management to create a winning strategy for our airline and it is important that a new contract reflect those contributions. Throughout these negotiations, Alaska Airlines Flight Attendants mobilized for an agreement that recognizes our award-winning role. While the AFA negotiating committee worked tirelessly for the priorities identified by the membership, the decision is up to the over 3,100 Alaska Airlines Flight Attendants,” said Jeffrey Peterson, AFA President at Alaska Airlines.
The tentative agreement was reached in December 2013 with the assistance of the National Mediation Board.
