The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers District 142 and Hawaiian Airlines announced that union members have approved a new, four-year contract that will increase compensation for more than 600 employees and lead to operational improvements for the carrier.

Negotiated between the union and airline officials last month, the new contract covers Hawaiian employees working as aircraft inspectors, mechanics, line service, cleaners and contract service personnel.

New contracts have now been accepted by all of Hawaiian's unionized labor groups, including recent deals secured with its pilots, flight attendants, clerical workers and dispatchers.
