Horizon Air flight attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, announced a tentative agreement with management today, including increased compensation, a new scheduling system and substantial improvements in flexibility for more than 500 union members.
Horizon Air, a wholly owned subsidiary of Alaska Air Group, has based more than 100 employees, including flight attendants, in Medford since last August.
"This agreement reflects the crucial role we have in the overall success of our airline and addresses the issues identified as most important by flight attendants," said Lexie Graham, acting association president at Horizon Air. "Horizon Air flight attendants have been active throughout this process, sending a strong, unified message to management that we are focused on the future of the airline and fully expect a contract that reflects the contributions we make each and every day."
Last June Horizon Air flight attendants rejected a tentative agreement.
Details of the agreement will now be sent to flight attendants for consideration. Voting on the agreement will begin June 24 and conclude July 18.
