AirTran flight attendants,
represented by the Association of Flight Attendants, AFL-CIO, have
reached a tentative contract agreement with the airline.
"The tentative agreement includes important improvements for our
flight attendants and it enables AirTran to continue on its course
of growth in the future," said AFA AirTran Master Executive Council
President Jon Edenfield.
"It’s important in these
turbulent times for our industry that we could work with the
company to reach an agreement that’s good for the flight
attendants and good for the airline."
The current flight attendant contract became amendable in
October 2002. AirTran flight attendants will have a chance to
review and vote on the tentative contract before details will be
released. The information and voting process will take
approximately one month.
A simple majority of AirTran flight attendants must vote
“yes” in order for the contract to ratify.
