US Airways flight attendants reject tentative agreement

US Airways flight attendants took a second look and decided they didn't like the proposed contract from the Tempe-based carrier.

The flight attendants voted to reject a tentative agreement with US Airways in a 51 percent to 49 percent vote. The five-year deal was endorsed by the Association of Flight Attendants leaders, who represent the US Airways workers.

"We are disappointed that our flight attendants chose to vote against ratification of a new contract," said US Airways chief executive Doug Parker. "Going forward, our current collective bargaining agreements remain in place, and we will consult with the National Mediation Board to determine the next steps."

Parker's really got his hands full with his labor force and his inability to fully integrate and settle contracts. He'll really be in for a treat if the APA enters the fold. The slowdowns and sickouts will be epic!

I just want to say there is NO WAY I am going to agree to walk into that landmine in a US Airways merger. Someone tell Laura Glading she can forget about it!

Hey LAX FA...people are slowly but surely falling off the Laura bandwagon. And with Parker's treatment of his own flight attendants, eyes are being opened and uneasiness is brewing among our ranks. What exactly are we signed up for?
