United Airlines and Flight Attendants Union Reach Agreement on New Joint Contract
United Airlines and the union representing its 25,000 flight attendants announced they had reached an agreement for a contract that covers flight attendants from the two airlines, United and Continental, which merged to form the current United Airlines.
The union, the Association of Flight Attendants, and the airline said they would work together to finalize contract language over the weekend.
Once finalized, the agreement is subject both to approval by the union’s Joint Master Executive Council, which should take place in a special session at the start of the coming week, as well as by the union membership.
United and Continental merged in 2010.
