Machinists Union Reaches

Tentative Contract

with Alaska Airlines

February 03, 2014 12:11 PM Eastern Standard Time

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)—The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) today announced it reached a tentative agreement on a new contract for approximately 3,000 clerical, office and passenger service employees at Alaska Airlines.

The five-year accord includes 12.3 percent in wage increases, improved job security provisions, strengthened merger protections, improved premium pay, enhanced home agent pay protections and holds the line on healthcare costs.

“I’d like to thank IAM members for their support and solidarity through this latest round of negotiations on Alaska Airlines,” said IAM District 142 President Tom Higginbotham. “I’m proud that our negotiating committee brought back a deal that provides economic and job security for IAM members at Alaska Airlines.”

The five-year deal runs through 2018. IAM District 142 is currently scheduling information meetings and unanimously recommends ratification of the tentative agreement.

Please visit www.iamdl142.org for more information.

The IAM represents approximately 3,000 clerical, office and passenger service employees at Alaska Airlines and is the largest airline union in the world.

 

WASHINGTON (AP) — Confronting the persistent joblessness that has marred the economic recovery, President Barack Obama won commitments Friday from more than 300 companies to reach out in their hiring to the nearly 4 million Americans who have been unemployed for half a year or more.

"It's a cruel Catch-22," Obama said at a White House event with CEOs, job training groups and advocates for the unemployed. "The longer you're unemployed, the more unemployable you may seem."

Obama called that "an illusion" because, he said, such workers are often better qualified and better educated than workers who just recently lost their jobs.

In addition to convening CEOs and getting their hiring pledges, Obama also signed a presidential memo directing federal agencies not to discriminate against those long-term unemployed workers in its own hiring practices.
