Alaska Airlines flight attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, AFL-CIO (AFA), on April 3 voted by 75 percent to ratify a joint collective bargaining agreement (JCBA) covering over 5,700 Flight Attendants at Alaska Airlines and former Virgin America.
The JCBA, amendable in December 2021, provides contractual improvements and pay increases for pre-merger Alaska Flight Attendants, immediate parity on pay rates for pre-merger Virgin America Flight Attendants who will transition onto the Alaska JCBA, and significant enhancements in maternity leave, schedule flexibility and work rules effective with full integration.
Virgin America Flight Attendants gained AFA representation in April 2017.
