Washington, D.C., January 9, 2016 Ã¢Â€” International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) Districts 141 and 142 today announced that members at Hawaiian Airlines overwhelmingly ratified tentative agreements covering approximately 2,200 Mechanic and Related, Clerical, Office, Stores, Fleet Service and Passenger Service Employees at the carrier.
The five-year accords provide pay increases and enhanced job security while holding the line on health care costs. The new contracts also secured profit sharing and other incentive programs.
“I’d like to thank the members at Hawaiian Airlines and their negotiating committees for bargaining and approving agreements that they can be proud of,” said IAM General Vice President Sito Pantoja. “Both District Lodge 141 and 142 did a great job coordinating this round of bargaining and demonstrating the solidarity of all IAM members at Hawaiian Airlines.”

“We’d like to thank the members at Hawaiian Airlines for their patience, support and solidarity during this round of bargaining,” said District 141 and 142 Presidents Mike Klemm and Dave Supplee, respectively. “The negotiating committees did an outstanding job and all IAM members at Hawaiian Airlines can be proud of these agreements.”
