Hawaiian, transport workers union sign agreement

MEDIA RELEASE
Hawaiian Airlines dispatchers, represented by the Transport Workers Union (TWU), have overwhelmingly ratified a new four-year contract with the airline that will provide increased pay and benefits as well as profit sharing for the dispatchers and operational improvements for the company.
Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian’s president and CEO, said, “This agreement is entirely consistent with the one overwhelmingly ratified by our flight attendants earlier this year, and with the proposals we have offered all of our union groups. Our agreements with the TWU and the AFA-CWA mean that we have now reached accord with two of the largest unions in the airline industry.”
John M. Conley, TWU International Vice President and Director, Air Transport Division, said, “We are pleased to have negotiated these improvements on behalf of our members at Hawaiian. In these challenging times, it’s refreshing to negotiate with a management team that shares our vision and commitment for improving the working conditions and standard of living of our members.”
The TWU represents 50,000 airline workers in the U.S., 31 of whom are dispatchers at Hawaiian Airlines. The AFA-CWA represents 55,000 flight attendants in the U.S., 1,000 of whom work for Hawaiian.
Hawaiian is in active federally mediated negotiations with the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA), which represents its 400 pilots, and with the International Association of Machinists (IAM),which represents more than 1,400 mechanics and customer service personnel.
