United Airlines (Chicago) has announced that flight attendants from its Continental Micronesia (CMI) subsidiary, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA), has ratified a new labor agreement.
The agreement extends the previous current collective bargaining agreement through December 2014.
Flight attendants from the company’s United subsidiary ratified a new four-year contract in February 2012, and flight attendants from the Continental subsidiary ratified an extension of their collective bargaining agreement last month. The company and the AFA begin negotiations for a joint collective bargaining agreement for all AFA-represented flight attendants on August 27.
Since merging with Continental, United has made significant progress in bringing together work groups. To date, United’s pilots, flight attendants, technicians, passenger service and fleet service employees determined union representation. The company has reached agreements with flight attendants from the United, Continental and CMI subsidiaries; and technicians from the United, Continental and CMI subsidiaries. Earlier this month, the company reached a tentative agreement with the Air Line Pilots Association for a joint collective bargaining agreement covering pilots.
