Ratification Vote Expected "Soon"
Pinnacle Airlines, Inc., announced Tuesday that it has reached
a tentative agreement with the United Steelworkers AFL-CIO (USW) to
amend the collective bargaining agreement covering 797 Flight
Attendants. The next step is for the Flight Attendants to vote on
ratification, which should occur soon. If ratified, the contract
would provide a five-year extension to the collective bargaining
agreement that became amendable on Jan. 31, 2011.
"The USW has a history of fair representation of employees, and
we look forward to achieving continued operational excellence
together," said Philip H. Trenary, President and Chief Executive
Officer of Pinnacle Airlines Corp. "We thank the committees
on both sides for their hard work and spirit of cooperation."
"This agreement demonstrates that employees are valued and have
a seat at the table," said Ken Ratliff, USW local union president.
"The contract emphasizes a commitment to work life balance,
diversity, and workplace flexibility, while taking into
consideration the airline's important work. Throughout the whole
process, flight attendants and managers listened to each other and
our relationship is improved as a result."
