The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) today announced that approximately 190 fleet service workers at Spirit Airlines overwhelmingly ratified their first, complete contract today.
An interim agreement covering wages, job security, union security, benefits, and the grievance process / system board of adjustment (arbitration) process was in place, after being ratified in June of 2015. The new, complete Contract also addresses job scope, hours of service & overtime, seniority, uniforms, safety and health, among other things.
The four-year contract runs through June of 2020. Besides providing the group their first, complete collective bargaining agreement, they now have a solid platform to build on.
Our entire Union thanks those members that participated in the station voting process. We especially thank the members of the Negotiating Team for their hard work to bring back an overwhelming endorsement from the members.
District 141 will certify the ratification votes on Tuesday, June 28, 2016.
