The agreement extends the current collective bargaining agreement through December 2014. Flight attendants will vote on the agreement in the coming weeks.
“We appreciate the leadership exhibited by the CMI AFA MEC President Suzanne Hendricks and her negotiating committee,” said Sam Risoli, senior vice president of inflight. “With this agreement in place, our CMI flight attendants will receive improved pay and benefits while we move forward to focus on a single contract that is sustainable and rewards our employees for their hard work.”
Flight attendants from the company’s United subsidiary ratified a new four-year contract in February 2012, and flight attendants from the Continental subsidiary ratified an extension of their collective bargaining agreement last week.
