Default Comair Pilots Voting on Agreement

Comair Pilots To Begin Voting On Contract Proposal -ALPA

Copyright 2005, Dow Jones Newswires

CINCINNATI (AP)--Comair pilots are to begin voting this weekend on a new contract proposal that union officials have said will include a pay freeze and unspecified contract improvements.

The Air Line Pilots Association represents about 1,800 Comair pilots. It declined Friday to release any details of the proposal until after members got a chance to see it on Saturday.

Voting is to begin by telephone and the Internet Sunday and run through March 1, union spokesman Brian Moynihan said.

The outcome is key for Comair, whose pilots are among the highest-paid among regional airlines. Pilots make between $23,000 and $109,000. Flight attendants make $20,000 to $40,000.

Comair president Fred Buttrell, who took over Comair on Jan. 17, wants the 6,000-employee airline to improve its reliability and customer service after a computer system failure forced the airline to cancel all Christmas Day flights, stranding thousands of passengers.

The company wants its 1,050 flight attendants to accept a pay freeze so the airline can buy up to 35 new jets to compete for more business. The flight attendants' union said it needs more information before it can take a proposal to its members for a vote.

Earlier this week, Comair's nearly 400 unionized mechanics rejected a five-year contract proposal. Union and Comair officials said they would arrange another round of meetings soon.

Comair is based at Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport. The airline carries about 30,000 passengers daily to 119 cities in the U.S., mostly east of the Mississippi River, and Canada and the Bahamas.

This thread needs to be deleted. This article is over 3 years old, and we took a paycut!

I'm locking this so it doesn't cause any confusion. I don't generally have a problem with necro-threads (JC term), but there is no meaningful dialouge here.
