Washington, DC – International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) Districts 141 and 142 have ratified an agreement with Hawaiian Airlines. The contract covers 2,200 mechanics, clericals and passenger service employees.
"I'd like to thank the members at Hawaiian Airlines and their negotiating committees for bargaining and approving agreements that they can be proud of," said IAM General Vice President Sito Pantoja. "Both District Lodge 141 and 142 did a great job coordinating this round of bargaining and demonstrating the solidarity of all IAM members at Hawaiian Airlines."
IAM Districts 141 and 142 initiated contract negotiations with Hawaiian Airlines in December 2013 and announced tentative agreements last month.
“The negotiating committees did an outstanding job and all IAM members at Hawaiian Airlines can be proud of these agreements," said District 141 and 142 Presidents Mike Klemm and Dave Supplee,
