Contracts Ratified at United
District 141 members, employed by United Airlines, have ratified their tentative agreement with the airline in significant numbers. Voting took place yesterday, October 28, 2013, across the entire United system, from New York to Guam and from Seattle to San Juan, Puerto Rico. Members in Customer Service, Reservations, Ramp Service, and Storekeeper work classifications participated in the vote with over 65% participation. The four year struggle to reach an agreement with United has been historic and difficult. Negotiations began in 2009 as the carrier was reemerging from the longest bankruptcy in American history at the time. Throughout the negotiation process our members faced an ever changing environment that challenged their solidarity and threatened their security. Our members faced the challenge of merger and consolidation during this period in the way that Union members before them have; through open and honest debate in union halls and work areas across the country and we have reached the conclusion together.
