Alaska Airlines and its flight attendants union the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA) have reached a tentative labour agreement.

The five-year contract includes wage increases and improved job security for the Seattle-based carrier’s more than 3,100 flight attendants, according to the union.

“Alaska Airlines flight attendants were unwavering in our resolve that a new agreement recognise the contributions we make each and every day to our award-winning airline,” says Jeffrey Peterson, AFA president at Alaska, in a statement.

Alaska flight attendant leadership must first approve the tentative agreement before it can go to the employees for a ratification vote.

The US National Mediation Board (NMB) assisted the parties in the negotiations.
