DSC_0495Southwest Airlines said late Friday it had reached a tentative agreement with the union that represents its flight attendants.

“I am pleased that we have reached this tentative agreement which, if ratified, will allow us to continue rewarding the many contributions that our Flight Attendants make to the success of Southwest Airlines,” said Sonya Lacore, the airline’s vice president for cabin services.

Neither the airline nor the union, Transport Workers Union Local 556, released any details about the agreement or any date for the ratification vote. The airline’s flight attendants rejected a tentative contract in July 2015 that would have raised wages but involved changes in workrules that some found burdensome.

The Dallas-based airline reached a tentative agreement with the union that represents its pilots in August.
