Alaska Airlines, flight attendants reach tentative deal

(Reuters) – A union representing flight attendants for Alaska Airlines said on Friday that they have reached a tentative agreement for a record contract with the carrier.

The details of the deal will be reviewed by the union’s leadership, followed by a member ratification vote, the Associate of Flight Attendants said.

Alaska Airlines did not immediately respond to a Reuters’ request for comment after hours.

American Airlines’ flight attendants union a day earlier said that their union had failed to reach a deal on a new contract, and that it had moved closer to a strike.

However, American Airlines had said it would continue to negotiate with the union so that its flight attendants benefit from the contract.
