HONOLULU -- Three more unions at Aloha Airlines ratified new labor
agreements -- including 10% pay cuts -- bringing the carrier closer
to securing final approval for a $40.5 million federal loan
The separate ratifications by the flight attendants, transport
workers and pilots unions followed last week's approval of the pay
cuts by the mechanics union.
In an effort to obtain the loan guarantee, the airline asked all
of its 3,000 employees to take pay cuts totaling $37 million over
the next three years.
Wage concessions will take effect Jan. 1.
