Alaska Airlines’ flight attendants reject the tentative agreement, demand improvements

Alaska Airlines‘ (Seattle/Tacoma) flight attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA), have voted down a tentative agreement with management.

According to the union, “negotiations began two years ago and, in May 2013, AFA filed for mediation with the National Mediation Board. During negotiations, Alaska Airlines earned record-breaking profits and continued to earn top awards and accolades for customer satisfaction with the assistance of the Flight Attendants. Next, AFA will re-survey the over 3,100 Flight Attendants to determine their top priorities.  The National Mediation Board retains oversight of future negotiations.”
