Tally Not Announced; It's Back to Negotiating Table
AirTran flight attendants, represented by the Association of
Flight Attendants, AFL-CIO, on Wednesday rejected the five-year
tentative contract agreement with the airline, that leaders of both

addresses the issues that came to light during this vote."
