Alaska Airlines Pilots Reach an Agreement in Concept on a New Contract

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The pilots of Alaska Airlines, represented by the Air Line Pilots Association, Int’l (ALPA), have reached an Agreement in Concept with Alaska Airlines management on a new, four-year contract.

Details of the agreement are being withheld until the full language is reached and the Union’s leadership votes to approve it as a tentative agreement. A tentative agreement must be approved by a majority vote of the pilot group before it can become the new pilots’ contract.

Alaska Airlines pilots have been working to negotiate a new contract since January 2007. The pilots would like to thank the National Mediation Board and its mediation staff for its assistance in allowing this agreement to be reached.

ALPA represents 52,250 pilots at 35 airlines in the U.S. and Canada, among them the 1,500 pilots of Alaska Airlines (NYSE:ALK), including 60 currently on furlough. Visit the Alaska MEC Web site at www.alapilots.com.
