A new five-year contract for Alaska Airlines’ 1,480 pilots has been tentatively approved by the Air Line Pilots Association International.
The proposed contract includes pay raises and what a statement called quality of life and productivity improvements.
ALPA leadership is unanimously recommending that pilots ratify the agreement during voting in mid-July.
The current contract was ratified in May of 2009 and became amendable April 1. Negotiators from both sides have been working toward the new contract since last summer.
Alaska Air and its partner airlines serve 95 markets in Alaska, Hawaii and the North American continent.
