AFA-CWA Reaches Tentative Agreement with Alaska Airlines

Last week, members of the AFA-CWA Alaska Negotiating Committee reached a tentative agreement with Alaska Airlines. The deal comes at the end of nearly two years of bargaining overseen by the National Mediation Board, which holds jurisdiction over critical industries such as air travel and railroads.

Members of the bargaining team attribute much of their success to the mobilization tactics of Flight Attendants at Alaska and solidarity actions at other airlines. The 99.48 percent strike vote, pop-up pickets, worldwide days of action, and the unprecedented participation in the Financial Security Survey all helped apply and maintain pressure on airline negotiators and executives.

The agreement will now go before the AFA-CWA Alaska Master Executive Council for review before the full agreement goes to the membership for a vote.
